Advanced Panelboxes Cloud

 




On Advanced Panelboxes for Confluence

Panel boxes are useful to structure text on a Confluence page.

  • In Cloud, there is no generic panel macro anymore. There are only the standard Confluence panels (info, warning, etc.) that cannot be customised.

  • Using the app Advanced Panelboxes for Confluence, administrators can configure a set of Panelboxes in the app settings that will be available to all editors.

  • Editors can simply pick a predefined box and be sure to match the cooperate design.

  • If the style of a Panelbox needs to be changed, those changes are made once in the app configuration. All the corresponding Panelboxes are changed immediately throughout the whole Confluence instance.

Using Advanced Panelboxes

  1. In the Confluence editor, type "/panelbox".

2. In the overlay, select one of the predefined Panelboxes, for example, "Red".

3. Optionally, give the Panelbox a title and decide on its alignment.

4. Click on the button "Insert".

5. Back in the editor, fill the Panelbox with content.

6. Publish/update the page when you are done.

7. The Panelbox "Red" is now part of your page.

Any changes to existing Panelboxes must be carried out by a Confluence Administrator (guide see below). Changes to the original Panelbox configuration will impact all existing Panelboxes on Confluence pages.

 


 

Configuring Advanced Panelboxes

 

You need to be a Confluence Administrator to configure and add Panelboxes.

 

  1. In the General Settings, select "Settings" under the entry "Advanced Panelboxes".

2. You will now see a list of the existing Panelboxes. These have been created when installing the app.


 

Configuring an existing Panelbox

 

  1. Click on the "Edit" link on the right side of the Panelbox you want to edit.

2. Change any settings you like, then click the "Save" button.

3. The new settings will now be applied to all Panelboxes with the name "blue". No need to edit dozens of pages once a setting changes!

2. Give the Panelbox a name and add properties (colours, border style).

3. When you are happy with the preview, click the "Save" button.
