Hi All, I need help with Confluence for technical documentation.

1. Can I host my documentation space on a private website? How?

2. Is there a way to remove the left Confluence sliding navigation from my site?


3. If I am writing a procedure with numbered lists, I want to add screenshots inline. At present, the numbering for the next step automatically restarts. I want to add screenshots without effecting the numbering of the procedure.

For example,

1. Click on Comment to enter comments. 

    The Comment page appears.

     [Comment Page Screenshot]

2. Enter your feedback in the Feedback section.

3. Click Submit.

Hello Rinky,

Welcome to Atlassian Community! It's nice to meet you.

  1. Confluence Cloud is only hosted on Atlassian's servers, but there's also a server version of Confluence, where you could host your site instead. For information on what kind of server you'd need to have to support this, have a look at the Confluence Server Hardware Requirements Guide. If you want to know more about the difference between the two platforms, please review our Atlassian Cloud vs Server comparison guide
  2. It is not possible to remove the sidebar from Confluence Cloud, as customizations such as this require javascript or CSS modification. This is restricted in Confluence Cloud but could be possible in Server, as long as you are comfortable modifying source code.
  3. If you were to hold down the SHIFT key when hitting return in a numbered list, does it allow you to add a screenshot without continuing the numbering?
