Display confluence page content only

Hi there,


is it possible to display the content of a page ONLY.

That means no header, no sidebar and that stuff. Just the page content is need.


Why would you do this?

I'm trying to implement a help popup where the content is stored in confluence.

Yep, you sure can. Create a user macro with the below code. Then put the user macro on the page that you want to only show the content on. Finally access the page and add ?frameable=true to the end of the url.

#if($req.getParameter('frameable') == "true")
#header, #footer, .ia-splitter .ia-splitter-left {display: none !important;}
#main {margin-left: 0 !important; border: 0 !important;}
body {background: #FFFFFF !important;}

Update 6/8/2018: fixed html encoding

Hi Davin! You're my HERO! Thank you so muche! Very appreciated! Cheers,Mario

Awesome! Simple and highly functional! Thanks!

I want a solution that will work on a lot of pages at once without inserting into every one. I am embedding using an iframe.

You can do that with the above user macro as well. Just create the user macro and then add the macro to the page decorator in Confluence Admin -> Layouts. Probably the Page Layout decorator would be the one you would put it into. Then it will be added to every page and every page could be iframed.

I have some problem with a calendar in this case. It disappears on page by url  with ?frameable=true. How can I fix it. Thanks.

Afternoon! Is there a way to do this without creating a macro? (user macros are disabled - or I can't find out how to make them - here)

I've tried using CSS, but it didn't work:

.theme-header { display:none !important; }

Whoops. Looks like I'm looking at the theme header. Which is what I want to remove, just for one page, the front page. I have a nav bar in it which is pointless on the front page, and that's large anyway.

I'll keep searching!



Sorted it.

I had my IDs and classes mixed up, so ... err ... I'll get mi' coat:

#theme-header { display:none !important; }

Boom. Single page. Theme header removed.

This is exactly what i am after but i cant make it work.. sorry, new to confluence macros.. so i have added a user macro and pasted in the code above.

When i add ?frameable=true to my URL, where the Macro is on the page, i see the below but i can still see nav.  Is there a setting on the macro i need to set so this code is 'rendered' in the page output?  ive tried different options to no avail.. any help appreciated

This was converted from the old Atlassian Answers site. When they did that the encoding of code blocks got borked a bit. I'll fix the above code.

posted in wrong place, and cant delete?

Does this not work if you're using a theme?
