Changing theme makes no difference


We are on Confluence version 5.3.1. When I change the theme of a space from Global Design to Documentation Theme I see no difference in the layout. Either which theme I choose, nothing changes.

Why could this be?

Is the Global Design using the Documentation Theme by default as well?

Hi Adrien,

Yes it is.



Hi Patrick, Cool! If that was the solution to your issue, it's important to mark the answer as correct, so karma is attributed to the user. Thank you! Adrien

Hi Adrien,

Not sure if that's the solution. Changing a site's theme should be visible no? Even when the global theme is Documentation Theme, I should be able to change the site's theme to the Global Design theme. But I see no difference.



See the bug report CONF-28982 (unresolved to date): If you choose the global theme to be the Documentation Theme, you can't revert to the default theme to individual spaces.
