How to customize Confluence icons

Screenshot.pngI am on version 5.8.

 

Is it possible to change the default Attachment Office Icons. I would like to upload Word, Excel, and PowerPoint .pngs and use those instead of the default Confluence Office icons; they are not intuitive.

Confluence Server is by far the easiest application to modify visually since you can apply custom HTML Layouts and styles from within the application, without modifying source files.

It looks like the question was answered best by David Simpson of App Fusions. You should check this answer out, it's a great answer, but you should essentially:

  1. Upload new icons to a stable location, perhaps in the home folder as suggested by David.
  2. Use CSS to select the appropriate elements (pdfs, excel files, etc) and and modify them appropriately.

This is the most lightweight and flexible solution. You must ensure that you 'bring' the update along when you upgrade the application. 

Is There a Macro for Returning a File Type's Icon?

I should note: I haven't tested this, although I'll give it a shot at some point.

Could you give us a screenshot so we know what Icons you're trying to replace?
