changing Confluences look and feel

Confluence® has quite universal, intuitive “wiki oriented” GUI. And many organizations don’t see a reason to change it.

  • Differentiating spaces or pages look, e.g. disabling comments on legal documents
  • Enriching content with media, custom content etc.
  • Multilingual content
