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.

In reading the documentation ( ), it seems the ability to format the page with CSS has to enabled by the site administrator--

I'm also in the process of trying to solve this issue-- not entirely sure if I'm on the right path because I don't even know what version of the software I'm using.

Hi @Alex Kulichkov 


By using panel macros we can add colors to a particular section in a confluence page in cloud environment, I am not sure whether these are available in server/Data center versions.pannel macros.PNG

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.

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.
