Re-assigning decorators on the fly?

This page shows that you can add the query string param "decorators" to a URL, and set it to "none":

Like this:

http://confluence.url/path/to/my.action?decorator=none

Does the "decorators" query string param take any other values? I've tried a few things, like names for other decorators, but could not find anything. Thanks!

The decorators are defined in the decorators.xml file in the source code of Confluence. Some interesting decorators are for example:

  • none
  • setup
  • main
  • sudo
  • admin
  • fixonly
  • printable
  • helppopup
  • popup
  • ...

It seems, that the decorator query string is no longer working for Confluence 5.4.3:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Documentation+Home?decorator=popup

Has the name changed? Has it been removed?

edit: From my testings: It stopped working with the release of Confluence 5.1.5.

edit2:

<mapper class="com.opensymphony.module.sitemesh.mapper.ParameterDecoratorMapper">
			<param name="decorator.parameter" value="decorator" />
			<!--
			<param name="parameter.name" value="printable" />
			<param name="parameter.value" value="true" />
			-->
		</mapper>

has been removed from /WEB-INF/sitemesh.xml in Confluence 5.1.5, you have to manually add it, in order to make it work in the current Confluence Release.

Before adding the ParameterDecoratorMapper again, be sure to read the XSS attack described here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-20865as this is the reason, why it has been removed.
