How Theme Press works
Theme Press gets you up-to-speed fast and easy. With one click, you can create a new intranet space, complete with example pages to explore and modify.
The app uses easy-to-edit template pages (called architect pages) that define and format page elements, including separate ones for the header, footer, and banner areas. These pages can be copied, renamed, modified, and then used as formatting alternatives, for an entire space or on a page-by-page basis. Menus are also defined by architect pages, and both menu style and choices can be easily customized.
With Theme Press, you have a page (a layout architect page) that defines the structure of your content display. You can change the layout from a single content block (the Confluence default) to whatever combination of blocks, columns and layers suits your content best. With the readily available Theme Press Control Panel, users can define what page elements are visible in the layout, such as breadcrumbs; page title; likes & labels; etc.
Layouts can include pre-configured content and structure so that a user's new pages are consistent with existing content. Using pre-built and easy-to-use code tools (macros), pages can dynamically include pre-labeled content from across your site in real time. Other macros can do everything from basic formatting to advanced searching–all without knowing code or programming–allowing users to build out rich pages and content easily as they grow more comfortable.
The Theme Designer lets you engage in theming--working with color palettes, fonts, and logo placements--to visually design pages that best reflect your company's brand. You can move objects such as the search bar, menus, header, footer, page title, and others to create a comfortable, functional, and consistent look-and-feel.
