In this section we are going to show you Confluence Information which we are using in the theme.
Some settings in the theme can be done directly within Confluence itself. The following section will show you what kind of Confluence features the theme uses.
We are using different information from an image embedded in a Confluence Page.
Size of Images
An image in your Confluence Page will be shown in full width in the Viewport Theme.
If you have images where you want to prevent this from happening you just need to set a manual width in 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. You can use if you want images to display in full size in the Help Center theme, but don't want big images to get in the way while editing in Confluence.
Descriptive Text for Images
The theme uses the title and alt text properties of an image. Read in the best practice section more about why you should use these properties.
We are using some macros of Confluence to display different content in the theme. In the following table you can see which macros we are using to grab information from. We are also using fallbacks if the macros aren't applied on your pages.
|Macro Name||What is used?||Where is it used?||Fallback|
|Excerpt Macro||Displays the content of the macro as a description for the site.|
Space Home Page
|If the macro isn't applied the first 40 characters of the space home page will be used.|
The content of your space can also be structured within the theme by using page labels in Confluence. The following table shows the name of the labels and which effect they have to the theme.
|Label Name||What does it do?||Which layout will be effected?|
|scroll-help-center-pinned-page||If the label is set to a page the page will be displayed on the space home page below the banner|
|scroll-help-center-cta-page||The page with this label will be set as call to action button below the space home description.|
A page with this label set will be excluded from the navigation and the overview. This does also apply for the children of this page.
|scroll-help-center-news-page||If you set the property "spaceHomePage.detail.news.source" to "label" the 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.|
Space Home Page Information
Some of the content for the theme is used from the space itself. The following table shows the type of information which is used, where and how it is used.
|Space Information||Where is it used?||How is it used?||Fallback|
Portal page and detail layout
|Space description||The space description is displayed within the spaces tile on the Portal Page.||No fallbacks.|
