Using decorators to show UI elements on custom pages in a Confluence Server plugin

Hi everyone,


I am building a Confluence Server plugin.

I have a custom web item and a custom XWork action.

The web item is located in the Actions menu of a page:

When I click the web item, it takes me to the view returned by the XWork action. However, I have only gotten the atl.admin and atl.general decorators to work.

Here is the Velocity template:

<title>Hello World - in title</title>
<meta name="decorator" content="atl.general"/>
<h1>Hello World!</h1>

And the resulting view:

How can I get my custom page to show the Spaces sidebar to the left, the breadcrumb and various interaction options at the top of a page (Share, Like, etc.) and the Comment section at the bottom?

I have some experience with developing JIRA plugins where it was relatively simple to get a custom page to show e.g. in the Project Settings. Confluence seems to be a different beast so far.

Those sections are web panels, try these as web panels-- for the left sidebar, for the breadcrumbs, and atl.comments.view.bottom or for the comment section
