centrally manage sidebar layout


I want to centrally manage the sidebar layout of 40+ spaces in our Confluence 6.4 on-prem install.


2 things need done: 

1/ turn off all the default links except Blogs, +

2/ add some code in the Sidebar Customizer:

{livesearch:spaceKey=@self|size=small|placeholder=Search this space}


If I can manage to create a link to "this space's blog posts", just like the "blogs" button, in markdown in the sidebar customizer, that's fine, too.


how can I proceed?

when copying spaces, sidebar design't isn't copied with it ....

I've looked around in the DB as well but can't seem to find what I'm looking for.
