Plans to remove the documentation theme


    • We collect Confluence feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      As previously announced, in order to better focus our development efforts on a single theme, we plan to remove the Documentation theme from Confluence.

      We know that many of you use the Documentation theme because you like to have a page tree in the space sidebar. The default theme's sidebar has had a page tree for some time now, plus other great features like sidebar shortcuts, JIRA links, and sticky table headers.

      To help you switch to the more modern default theme, we've added some of your favourite documentation theme features, including the ability to add:

      • a header and footer
      • custom content to the sidebar.

      These new additions to the default theme are available now for Cloud customers, and will be available in Confluence 5.9 for Server customers.

      Update 27 April: The documentation theme has been removed from Confluence Cloud.
      See our frequently asked questions page for answers to all your questions about the default theme and migration process in Confluence Cloud.

      For Confluence Server customers, the documentation theme will be removed in Confluence 6.0. We'll provide plenty of information well in advance to help you prepare for the change.
