Key Features

  • Create your personal/corporate look within Confluence. Upload your logo, adjust the height of the header, add a custom background image or pick a specific color. Choose individual colors for header icons, notifications, buttons, links, and much more

  • Directly access your favorite pages through the persistent Linchpin Sidebar

  • Customize your footer by adding additional links and colors

  • Use the “layout box” macro to create useful dashboards or pages

  • Add Custom CSS and Custom JS for further customization

  • Create different themes for multiple spaces

  • Switch between the standard Confluence dashboard and a modern centered version

  • Import and export customized themes

  • Configure start pages for your users, based on their profile attributes

  • Style other Linchpin apps/macros like the site navigation in the "Linchpin Navigation Menus" app or the "Cover Stories" macro from the "Enterprise News Bundle" app

  • Create a global menu easily in Confluence. Simply drag & drop menu items to create multi-language menus for your users.

  • Make your navigation (or parts of it) public for anonymous Confluence users.

  • Permit arbitrary Confluence users or user groups to edit the navigation structure.

  • Preview the menu and use filters to see how it will be shown to users.

  • Use live filtering to more clearly configure the relevant parts of your navigation structure.

  • Choose to display your navigation as dropdown menu or multi-column flyout menu.

  • Never lose old versions of your previously built menu structures, thanks to the menu structure history.

  • Use wildcards to filter menu items for users or user groups more easily. Build even more complex filters with logical operators (AND, OR, NOT).

  • Draft your menus:

    • Save and preview menu drafts without publishing them immediately.

    • See a warning message if there are unpublished draft versions of the menu created by another menu editor.

    • See published versions highlighted in the menu history.

  • Import and export menus.

  • Use custom styles by using CSS classes for active menu items.

Please note: Creating a navigation menu is part of the Linchpin theme app in version 2.19 or higher.

Previously that functionality was available as a standalone app (Linchpin Navigation Menus).
