Page Content

Some settings in the theme can be customized directly within Confluence itself.

Images

The theme uses information from an image embedded in a Confluence Page.

Size

An image on a page displays in full width in the viewport. You can also set the manual width of the images using the images settings in the Confluence Editor.

Using one of the three relative size buttons in Confluence does not affect the image size in the Help Center theme, but does affect how big images are displayed in Confluence. Use these options only if you want images to display in full size in the Help Center theme, but don't want to see large images while editing in Confluence.

Descriptive text

The theme uses the title and alt text properties of an image. Learn more about why you should use these properties.

Macros

The theme uses some Confluence macros to display different content.

Macro NameWhat is Used?Where is it Used?Default
Excerpt MacroDisplays the content of the macro as a description for the site.

Space Home Page
The content of the macro displays a description for the space.
Learn more about where the description displays.

Portal Page

Learn more about where the description displays.

If the macro isn't added to the space home page, the first 40 characters of the page are used.

Page labels

The content of your space can also be structured within the theme using page labels.

Label NameWhat Does it Do?Which Layout Will be Affected?

scroll-help-center-pinned-page

A page with this label displays on the space home page below the banner.

To order the pinned pages, append a number as shown below to determine their order:

  • scroll-help-center-pinned-page-1
  • scroll-help-center-pinned-page-2
  • scroll-help-center-pinned-page-3
scroll-help-center-cta-pageA page with this label is set as call to action button below the space home description.
scroll-help-center-exclude-page

A page with this label will be excluded from the navigation and the overview. This also applies for the children of this page.

Use Case Example

The page is still accessible through the viewport. This gives you the possibility to implement pages like a sitemap.xml or pages you want to be accessible through a footer or header link.

scroll-help-center-news-pageIf you set the "spaceHomePage.detail.news.source" setting to "label", a page with this label will be taken as the news source. The page itself can be accessed through the "Read More" button and the first two children are displayed on the space home page.
scroll-help-center-sitemapA page with this label renders as a sitemap.xml file listing all pages in that space. It is also hidden from all navigation. Learn more.
scroll-help-center-sitemap-index

A page with this label renders as a sitemapindex.xml file listing all sitemaps in the help center. Learn more.

Use this label only in portal space!


scroll-help-center-no-indexPages with this label are excluded from all sitemaps and are not indexed by search engines in general. Learn more.
