Set the default theme

Themes are used to change the appearance of your Confluence Cloud instance. See Install a theme for an overview of how you can add more themes. 

To change the default theme:

  1. If you aren’t already there, go to your Confluence Cloud instance.

  2. Select the wheel icon () in the top-right corner to open Confluence administration.

  3. Find Settings in the left-hand navigation.

  4. Select Look and feel > Themes.

  5. Select a theme from the list under Choose New Theme.

    1. If you don’t see any themes listed, you will need to Install a theme from the Atlassian Marketplace first.

  6. Select Confirm.

All spaces that have the Global look and feel applied as their space theme will inherit this theme and any customizations you make to it.

Users can also select their own theme, choosing either Light or Dark. These choices are independent of the theme you choose in settings, however each theme responds to the user’s current choice, presenting slightly darker colors in Dark mode.
