How to reproduce the Documentation theme "custom-top-menu" in the Global theme?

Nicolas Casel Jul 13, 2016

Some of our wikis use the Documentation theme with a 'customized' top menu:

1) accessible via this url: <domain-name> /wikis/display/ <keyspace> /custom-top-menu

2) displayed by this div:

<div id-"custom-top-menu"></div>

 

To change correctly the Documentation theme to the Global theme, how is it possible to keep this custom top menu?

First off the "Global Theme" is simply the theme that is select in Confluence Admin as your default theme for a space unless overridden. With a base Confluence install you have two themes available Documentation, and Default. So, I believe you are asking how to the get this custom menu into the "Default theme". To do that you would need to edit the theme decorators, which are under Confluence Admin -> Look and Feel -> Layouts.

Thanks Davin for your feedback.

Indeed, it seems that the only way is to customize the 'Main Layout' in the wiki space administration.

So, I've added some HTML code in this 'Main Layout' template. However, this is now "hard coded" instead of referring to an external file like with the Documentation theme.

Would it be possible to call this external file?

You can use the below syntax.

#parse ("/path/to/file.vm")
