AaltoWiki theme Aalto Academic Project and Event Workspace -instructions

How to...

You find the theme when you log in to wiki.aalto.fi and click Spaces - Create space - Aalto Academic Project and Event Workspace. After this you give the space a name and it will automatically create a space key for the space you are creating. After you have created your new space you will have to go to Space tools (bottom corner) and click Look and Feel. After this you simply choose the new theme "Aalto Academic Project and Event Theme" and click Confirm.


Technical info

The theme consists of two distinct parts; the theme plugin itself and Confluence News Macro plugin. The News Macro plugin is independent, so it can be used without the theme, but the theme needs the macro plugin to be installed in Confluence.

Theme components

The theme consists of the following components:

  • Theme visuals
  • Space blueprint
  • Page blueprint
  • Macro to set the theme sidepanel custom content


This component modifies the Confluence default look and feel, with;

  • Aalto logo on top left corner
  • Configurable text area on top right corner
  • Customizable header background image
  • Configurable subheading in header
  • Configurable notearea in header
  • Styled sidepanel
  • Configurable heading colors

Configurable actions are performed via "Configure theme" selection in space tools, in the "Look and feel" tab.

Here was some basic info. More detailed and pictured instructions in English are attached to this page in PDF format.
