  1. Go to the space in Confluence Cloud.

  2. Select Space Settings from the sidebar.

  3. Select Space details from the Manage space card.

  4. To edit the space name:

    1. Select Edit Space Details and type in a new name.

    2. Select Save.

Edit what appears in your space sidebar.

The capabilities and cards available in Space settings depend on your permissions. Sidebar editing is only available to product and space administrators, along with permissions, look and feel, archiving, and deleting a space.

Space shortcuts

Shortcuts are helpful or important pages that members of a space might need to get to often. These shortcuts are added and organized by the space administrator.


Space admins can link to pages in the space, other related spaces, or relevant external web content as well as reorder the shortcuts as needed.

Apply an admin-driven theme to a space

Themes are used by an admin to change the appearance of a space. Confluence comes with a default theme, but your Confluence Administrator can download and install other themes from The Atlassian Marketplace

Once a theme is installed, it can be applied to the whole site, or just to individual spaces.

To apply a theme to a space:

  1. Go to the space in Confluence Cloud.

  2. Select Space Settings from the sidebar.

  3. Select Themes from the Look and feel card.
    You'll need space admin permission to do this. 

  4. Choose a theme option.

  5. Select Confirm.

What's the global look and feel?

Global look and feel refers to a theme that's applied at the site level, and applies to all newly created spaces. Changes made to the global look and feel will flow through to all spaces that inherit it.

If a space has its own theme applied, it won't inherit changes from the global look and feel. To go back to inheriting the global look and feel, select Global look and feel from the Themes tab.

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.
