Floating footer on a wiki page


Is there an option to add a floating footer in Confluence pages (e.g. similar to standard "Powered by Atlassian" footer) that would be also visible on each page after printing?

When you say "after printing", you mean you want the footer to show up as a footer on the printed page? I don't think this is possible, unless you want to put the footer itself in the 'content' area of the page, which would then print out, but it would not print at the bottom of each page, only at the end of the document.

Confluence does help you overcome some of the ugliness that comes with printing Wiki pages out of a browser by having a separate "printing" layout. You can customize this to make your pages print nicely. You might even be able to add a footer, but I don't think it gives you that level of control.

Hi Matthew,

thanks for your reply, I've tested this printing layout settings and it does the job.

Here is a link to the Confluence documantation in case anyone looks for how to achieve this:


Any ideas if placing a floating footer while scrolling through the wiki pages is possible?



Hi JK,

you might have a look at our Scroll PDF Exporter.

Using this you can define multiple templates with different headers and footers, page titles, tocs, static pages and much more.

I'm quite sure our add-on can help meeting your requirements.


Thanks for your reply Nils, unfortunately at the moment we use the OnDemand version of Confluence+Jira and I can see that this plugin is only for the download version, but anyway good to know that there is an option. Maybe in the future...



Yes, unfortunately our add-ons are not yet supported for Confluence OnDemand, but we'll work on this in 2014.

If you want you can watch / vote the corresponding JIRA issue: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/AOD-4869


yep sure :)
