I may be wrong, but any help would be good. At present, we have the "out of the box" version of Confluence 4.3.6. Have been told Refined Wiki is the best add on to put in the features we are after (intranet feel to our design) but you need to have staff experienced in CSS/Javascript/HTML for this and we are trying to get away from reliance on programmers for our intranet.
