Instructions for academic project and event wiki theme

Technical experience is not necessary. Aalto Wiki sites are easy to set up and theme is simple and intuitive to use.

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 side panel 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 note area in header
  • Styled side panel
  • 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 Finnish are attached to this page in PDF format.
