Using zen is it possible to skin the confluence search page?

We've skinned our documentation pages nicely using zen, but we've received complaints that search drops out into the default Confluence style search page.

How can we fix this?

Thanks in advance,

Dave Westwood

Zen follows Confluence on the search results, in that those are really outside of any space context (as are the dashboard, etc.).

In Zen, as in Confluence, those areas take the global look and feel (if Zen is set site wide, this would be the default theme). Therefore, if you haven't set Zen as the default theme, we suggest doing it so that the search results take the same header, footer and color scheme.

That works great. Thanks.

I'm just getting a slight problem, with the old Confluence version we run our live site on, where another toolbar is displayed on top of the search section - I might be able to get around that by making the toolbar not available for anonymous users in the skin applied site wide to Confluence.

All problems resolved now. Thank you for your help
