Hi, I can't enable css permissions to any user. My user is sys-admin but the option "Custom Stylesheets for Spaces" remains disable and it's impossible to change it.

Hi David,

Custom CSS is one of the restricted functions in Confluence Cloud. It's mentioned on this page:

Hi @David Villaumbrales, there is a limited workaround which is worth knowing here:

You can put CSS in space header, footer or sidebar. In your space, go to "Space tools" > "Look and Feel" > "Sidebar, header and footer".

You can put CSS there inside wiki-markup {style} tags.

For example to change page titles to red, you can put the following in 'Header':

{style}#title-text a{color: red}{style}

See the comment from Stephen Deutsch on: How to hide the "spaces"-Button in Confluence Cloud.


Doesn't work for me.  Help?
