Confluence space specific announcement banners?

I see how to make a Confluence wide announcement in the Custom HTML section. And I've seen older notices from 2009 discussing space specific announcement banners. But I can't find any specific descriptions of how to do it and I'm not sure if it is still an available option. Is it, and if so, how?

Go to the space stylesheet...

Default theme
Space tools -> Look and Feel

Documentation theme
Browse(menu) -> Space Admin -> Look and Feel -> Stylesheet

Then add this. You can play around with the styling to make it look like what you want, but it should work just fine without the need to install any plugins or anything like that.

#header::before {
	background: #FFD;
	font-weight: bold;
	text-align: center;
	padding: .4em 0 .3em 0;

Does this work for you?

That should be fine. Thank you.

Feel free to make the question as answered if an answer meets your needs. :) Thanks.

Matthew, try this:

{note:icon=false}{center}<Some text goes here. [WLA:<Page Name to link to>] {center}


  • {note:icon=false} - this can also be True
  • [WLA:<Page Name to link to>] - use this to add a link. WLA is the space key.
  • {center} - centres the text across the page.

Do this here:

  1. Check the space is using the Documentation theme/layout. If it isn't you can't add a banner.
  2. If it does, click the Configure theme button. This opens a new page with three panels.
  3. In the Messages area, click in the Header or Footer field.
  4. Enter your code here. This should be Confluence's wiki markup.
  5. Press Save. The banner will now appear on all pages within that space.

There is no non-Documentation specific method?

No, you can only do this in the Doc theme.
