how to change background color inside a confluence (Layout) section

Hello Everyone!


We have a need to modify Background color of a layout section in confluence page.

We are working on a page design and Panel macro seems a bit crude (Even though i'm able to use CSS  to set Header and body color if needed)

Thanks for the answer! 

I'm aware of this plug-in, but our use case is in prototype page, so we can't justify 7200$ just for POC that is not approved yet.


I would assume we should be able to include some css formatting into the layout section, but im not sure how to do it with native functionality.

Why not create a user macro to do what you want? You just have all the content surrounded by a styled div tag.

Do you have template or something to start with? i'm more involved with process and change management.

Hi Nayereh, 


Thank you for the suggestion, but we'll face similar issue as with content-formatting suggestion, 5200$ is hard to justify at the moment.
