Customise the interface

Administrators can set a custom colour to be used in the menu bar that appears when you edit a diagram in Confluence Cloud by adding some CSS to the JSON configuration code in the Configuration settings. Setting a specific theme to be used by default whenever users create or edit a diagram is done in a similar way.

Set a custom menu colour and default theme

  1. Go to the Configuration tab in the Configuration section of your Confluence Cloud settings.
  2. Add the CSS code to customise the background colour of the menu bar.
  3. Set a default theme: kennedy, atlas, dark or min. For example, users will see an orange menu bar and use the Kennedy theme by default with the following configuration code:
      "css": ".geMenubarContainer { background-color: #F08705 !important; } .geMenubar { background-color: #F08705 !important; }“,
      "ui": "kennedy"

    Customise the menu bar and default theme in Confluence Cloud themes

There are three editor themes you can set as the default in Confluence Cloud.

Kennedy theme in for Confluence Cloud
kennedy: The Kennedy theme has no logo to the left of the menu.

Atlassian theme in for Confluence Cloud
atlassian: The default Atlassian theme uses the Atlassian colours and includes the logo.

Minimal theme in for Confluence Cloud
min: The Minimal theme shows you a larger drawing canvas and uses floating instead of fixed panels for shape libraries and format settings. Board macro

The simpler whiteboard-like editor theme (Sketch) is used by default in the Board macro.

With the Sketch macro, you have a fully featured online whiteboard inside Confluence Cloud

Note: Dark mode now works for all of the editor themes.
