By default, links in the main content area of Confluence pages are differentiated by color alone, which is an accessibility bug. I'd like to update the CSS so that links in the main content area are underlined without having to edit each and every template and blueprint with a custom CSS macro.

Amen, brother. Why would Atlassian turn off this necessary functionality in Cloud Confluence? Particularly since their default CSS is so awkward. Suddenly Cloud users don't need this? I doubt it.
I've wasted *hours* on this, because Atlassian says very clearly HERE that custom CSS functions? Why not add a note to the documentation that says that the feature has been disabled in Cloud? I hate when Atlassian wastes my time for no logical reason.
This kind of backward thinking is why we turned away from Confluence at my last job.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
