Customize CSS for online presentation?

Is there any way to customize the CSS to affect a wiki's on-screen appearance? In particular, I'd like to customize the font size and color for h1, h2, h3, etc.

I see that any rules added to the PDF stylesheet affect only a wiki exported as a PDF.

Since you are running Confluence cloud, unfortunately the only CSS customizations that are available are on a page by page basis.  You'll need to have the Adaptavist Content Formatting Macros enabled and include the CSS Stylesheet macro in your page.

Hi Lisa,

You can modify for the space by going to Browse > Space Admin > Stylesheet and add your css

If you want it to be global got to BASE URL/admin/viewstylesheet.action




Thank you, Nelson.

I may be missing it, but I don't see anything on the Space Admin screen except  for the PDF stylesheet:


I'm now trying your second suggestion:

...and I'm getting a never-ending wait cursor...

I'm using Confluence Cloud (I suspect that's where the customization limitations come in).

(I'm also being limited to only three questions or comments because I don't have 25 points – I'm not sure how to go about earning those – so I can only edit my existing questions and comments. I hope you find them here.)



What Confluence version do you have?

My answers were for a Confluence server. It looks that cloud does not have those options. Regards Nelson
