Creating and Applying a theme in Confluence


The look and feel customization seems to have been disabled on the Cloud version of Confluence. 

What are the options for customizing the current theme? And/or When will the feature be available again?

Hi @Marianne Laurent,

The ability to theme Confluence Cloud is heavily limited at the moment. You might find that any documentation related to theming APIs is completely out of date and doesn't work anymore. There's a discussion about this over on the Developer Community which I highly recommend reading. Particularly this response by Atlassian.


Hi @Sven Schatter _Lively Apps_,

Thanks for the quick answer and the link to the related topic. I'll see how I can manage as it is for the moment while waiting for the releases planned in the next months.

You have to install a theme from the marketplace - see 

You can create your own by following the guide you linked to.

Thanks @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ 

Unfortunately, this feature is now disabled on the cloud version, even though documentation is not crystal clear on this possibility.

See this response pointed out by @Sven Schatter _Lively Apps_ below.
