Basically this is what we're trying to achieve as a Confluence page:
I mocked this up before getting very familiar with Confluence. So now I'm wondering - Is it even possible?
I had the entire thing written up in HTML, but when pasting the code as Markup, it did not translate into Confluence very well.
It looks like when it comes to Page Layout, these are the following options:
But I do not see a way to insert any of these layouts within an existing column.
I will need the initial layout to be 'two columns with left sidebar'. And then within the right column, I will need 'two columns with right sidebar'. Is it possible to create columns within a column in Confluence?
Please help if possible. Thanks!
@Sean Duff I think you will be able to get the layout you have above to work in Confluence. you can not have a layout within a layout but you can have multiple layouts on a page. https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/add-formatting-to-your-page/
You can add tables within a layout but for what you have above I do not think you will need it. See what I did below.
Formating in the new editor is limited but they are adding to it regularly.
Table borders can not be hidden in the new editor. Vote for the feature request here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-59956
As far as styling goes there are some macros that allow you to format content and I would suggest that you learn about them here: https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/what-are-macros/
To answer your other questions:
- I'd like to declare the headings as H1, H2, etc Text formatting provides normal text and headers H1 through H6.
- I'd like to create buttons with custom wording the new editor does not have a button macro and I am not sure you can create them anymore.
- I'd like to create 4 columns for the product images. Or figure out a way to do that as is shown in my mockup above. You can use the table macro but it will have outlines.
Thanks. Heading and button issues have been solved (I also realized that I could just create custom buttons with the HTML macro). And I might look into the 4 column layout issue later because for now - I'm actually still trying to figure out how to create a borderless table.
In the comments section for the feature request link that you sent me, there's a comment which claims there's a workaround for the borderless table issue via the CSS Stylesheet Macro:
So I'll just need to enter this code in the CSS:
How do I access the CSS Stylesheet Macro?
Doing a search for 'CSS' in All macros shows nothing:
And I do not see a Gear icon as is suggested here:
In order to access General Configuration > Security Configuration > Custom Stylesheets for Spaces.
Or a 'Stylesheet' option as is suggested here:
Again, my options in Confluence look like this:
And unfortunately I do not see a gear or 'stylesheet' option anywhere on this page.
So then the issue with that is - How do I find out what the src for an image is that I've uploaded?
Because I'll need to declare the source or path in the HTML for an image:
EDIT* Found a solution to this. Go to Space Tools > Content Tools > Attachments
I do not know. The screenshot at the end of my post shows the options that I currently have available. How can I find out whether I'm on the server or the cloud?
In general, there do not seem to be many options here i.e.
- I'd like to declare the headings as H1, H2, etc
- I'd like to create buttons with custom wording
- I'd like to create 4 columns for the product images. Or figure out a way to do that as is shown in my mockup above.
Those questions are not related to this post, though, so I might have to ask a separate question for that.
