Create a completely blank Confluence page?

Hi all,

I was wondering if there was a way to strip all content from a Confluence page (headers, footers, etc.) and only have user-created HTML (A couple buttons and words).

My reasoning is trying to have authentication access to an iFrame that will be outward facing. We want to create the iFrame and point it to a blank Confluence page, then only give certain Confluence users access to edit it.

Thanks in advance!

If you create a plugin for that, have a look at ViewPageAction#execute() in the source of Confluence (which you can download from That will give you a good example of how Confluence renders content.

Another approach you can use is to prevent Confluence from applying any decorator to the file. You do this by editing the decorators.xml file. Within the <decorator name="none"> block, add the following:
