Space types allow to categorize spaces inside the space directory.

What are space types?

Space types are similar to space categories. Types are like folders for spaces. It's a nice way of displaying all related spaces in the space directory.

How to access the space types settings?

Navigate to Confluence administration > Linchpin Theme > Space types.

Create space types

To create a new space type, click on the Create button.

Choose a title for your space type and enter the space categories which should belong to this space type.

Click on the Save button to create the space type.


1) A space type called "Teams", containing space categories which relate to every team space.

2) A space type called "Branches", containing space categories which relate to every branch and their spaces.

To delete a space type, click on the Delete  button. A confirmation window will open. Click on Delete to confirm the deletion.

Translate space types

You can translate the titles of your space types. The translations will be applied where needed. For example, when an employee has their language set to "Spanish", a Spanish translation of the space type will be displayed in their space directory.

Click on the translate  button.

A window will open. Click on the Select new locale button to choose a language. Click on the + Add button to add this language to the translation database.

You can now enter the translated title of the space type. Click on the Save button to save the translation.

To change a translation, click on the edit  button below the translated title. Then enter the new translation and click on Save.

Even if you add more languages than you need, you don't have to enter all translations.

You don't have to enter translations at all. Apply translations only where you need them.
