Hello Rahul, you can remove a community by using the "Community Type" menu in the add on configuration pane. Note that in order to do so you need to switch any current existing spaces away from that specific type.

More information on this can be reviewed in the Bubbles docos, after this link.

Thanks Guilherme, that helps...

Hi Rahul,

Hope this finds you well. 

You can only delete community types that aren't currently in use by any community spaces. The cross icon will appear next to any community types that can be deleted.

If you want to delete a community type which is currently in use, use the communities macro to find a list of all existing communities of that type then edit their community settings to change to a different community type. You'll be able to delete the community type when it's no longer being used by any spaces.

You can read more on this and find all the information with regard to our plugin within our documentation  of Community Bubbles: 

Also please know with regard to Community Bubbles,  know we have recently archived few of our plugins. One of them is Community Bubbles.

We had evaluated Community Bubbles , one of our oldest add-ons for Confluence. During this process we looked to determine how we could move Community Bubbles forward as a product and continue to deliver value to our customers via this add-on. During the course of investigation we identified a significant level of technical debt inherent in maintaining Community Bubbles that effectively means it is unsustainable for us to continue to offer Community Bubbles in it’s current state. We are focused on providing add-ons that deliver real value to our customers and there is currently too little demand to justify the development required to continue offering this product, either as a free add-on or as a commercial offering . It is therefore with deep regret that I must inform you of our difficult decision to retire Community Bubbles from our product portfolio.
Please go to the following link in order to get more information about this decision.

To check the plugin compatibility please find below.

  • the version of Confluence  you are using,
  • the add-on name and version you are using,
  • all information regarding the issue you are facing including log files, steps to reproduce, screenshots, storage format etc.
