How to create custom teaser styles

As an administrator, you can create custom teaser styles. It's possible to create up to 10 different styles. Please note, though, that only styles set to Active can be used for the Teaser macro.

Navigate to Confluence administration > Linchpin Theme > Configuration > Teaser.

What can I customize?

Customization options include:


A name for your teaser configuration. This name will be displayed inside the "Teaser colors" menu inside the Linchpin Teaser macro.


The background color of your Linchpin Teaser macro.


The color of text in your Linchpin Teaser macro.


The border color around your Linchpin Teaser macro.

You can use a hex value ( for example #000000 for black) or the built-in color picker to select a color.

Want to configure the different Linchpin Teaser macros?

Learn how to configure the different Linchpin Teaser macros here.

We don't recommend placing other macros within the Linchpin Teaser macro.

Placing another macros within the Linchpin Teaser macro might cause problems with either macro – both functionally and visually.

Example: In this GIF you can see a Linchpin Teaser macro which includes:

  • a link to our Linchpin website;
  • an Event macro.

As you can see, the clickable elements (which include some sort of a link themselves) are not compatible with each other. For example, you can't open the event anymore because the link inside the Linchpin Teaser macro is triggered.

Teaser types "Image" and "Icon" are available only since version 2.12 of Linchpin Theme. If your version is 2.11 or lower, you can't use those teaser types.

Make sure that your theme is active

Please note: Make sure that Linchpin Theme is active.
