Learn about editing content blocks

These are the basic menus and controls that allow you to create and edit pages in your site. With regular use, they'll become second nature.

The Simple Toolbar

An abbreviated set of options, the Simple Toolbar provides access to the primary tools for working on a page, and is accessed from the Hamburger Icon (that replaced the chevron icon after version 2.0 of Theme Press). You can also open up or hide the Simple Toolbar menu by using the "Z" shortcut. 



You open Block Editing by choosing it from the hamburger menu or using the "x" key.


Collapse the Confluence Menu with the left-aiming chevrons or hide it completely with the "z" shortcut to see how your page looks to users who don't have access to the menu.

Once Block Edit is selected, you can edit any content block by clicking on the pencil icon in the upper right corner of the block. The main block will be in focus. Start editing that block without clicking the pencil by using the "e" key. You're off and running.


The Theme Press Designer

A special side panel unique to Theme Press, the Theme Press Designer. is opened by choosing it from the Tools or ellipse menu. You'll use the designer for simple actions, such as adding new blocks, rows or columns that make up the page. You'll also use the designer for more complex activities, such as changing layouts (on a page or space level) as well as editing themes.

Use the "." shortcut to open the designer.,

Depending on your permissions, you may see three tabs in the Designer:

  • Page (generic or architect)
  • Architect
  • Theme


Header, Menu, and Footer

The Header, Menu and Footer are controlled by specific pages within the theme for the space. These will be configured for each space (or the entire site) by the Site Architect before you begin building out your content. If you wish to change the any of these elements within a space, you will do so within Theme Press Designer.
