I can't activate custom style sheet

Hi there

I'm confluence adminitrator.

I use custom style sheet in my cloud site.

but I can't activate custom style sheet when I access administration page.

1. access General Configuration

2. access Security Configuration

3. I can't check Custom Stylesheets for Spaces

Please tell me why do I check this configuration?

I think you are reading the documentation for Server Confluence, rather than Cloud, where you cannot do custom css.

Thank you for quick reply!!!

got it.

I have found documentation for cloud in the following.


I will try to consider other ways.

I recently came across this problem and this is my workaround, although it will style all spaces, not just one.

Confluence 6+ on cloud has introduced a Sidebar, Header and Footer customisation screen in the Look and Feel section. Bonus, you can still use wiki markup here!

  • Go to Confluence Administration > Look and Feel > Sidebar, header and Footer
  • In the Footer section add the style macro with your custom styling. Example
.wiki-content h2 {
  border-bottom: 1px solid #ebebeb;

It should look something like this


When saved this will style all your Confluence pages.
