Is it possible to use inline CSS in confluence?


I am trying to change the look and feel of very few elements in a page. I don't want to go through the process of using CSS as a file and make changes to my page. Is there a way i can do it inline ie code CSS along with wiki markup ?

I just found it. You can add CSS styles to confluence content this way:

{style} h2 {font-size: 15px; color:#006600;} {style}

But, Any styles you define within the content of a Confluence page come after Confluence's master style sheets - so any property that has already been defined by your space's theme can't be redefined. Digging around with the Web Developer Firefox Add-ons can help you figure out what's already been defined, and what can be styled.

Thanks, this is a cool trick.

You can actually use HTML macro to achieve that. You can change the CSS styles for all contents by adding !important on the styles


h2 {
font-size: 15px !important;
color:#006600 !important;

You mean to say u can wrap this code around {html} and it'll work? But the problem is {html} is restricted due to security reasons and i dont have admin privilages :( But,Thanks!

Is there a way to do it without using the html macro?

Can you do this in all versions? I'm running 3.3.1 and all I get is "Unknown macro" :(

I am not sure about that as im using 3.5
