The Easy Reader theme is one of the themes bundled with Confluence. This is a fixed-width variation of the default Confluence theme. Its larger fonts, smooth gradient background and comfortable line length make it ideal for displaying and reading longer documents.

Quick guide to applying the Easy Reader theme

  1. Go to 'Space Admin' and click 'Themes'.
  2. Select 'Easy Reader Theme'.
  3. Click 'Confirm'.

The rest of this page gives more details of the above procedure.

(info) You need space administrator permissions to apply a theme to a space.

Applying the Easy Reader Theme to your Space

Follow the steps below to apply the 'Easy Reader Theme' to your space. All pages in the space will start using the theme immediately.

To apply a theme to a space:
  1. Go to the 'Space Admin' tab of the Browse Space view. To do this:

    • Go to a page in the space, open the 'Browse' menu and select 'Space Admin'.
      (info) 'Space Admin' is displayed only if you are a space administrator for that space or you are a Confluence system administrator.

  2. Click 'Themes' in the left-hand panel under the heading 'Look and Feel'. This will bring up a new screen showing all available themes. See screenshot below.
  3. Click a radio button to select a theme.
  4. Click 'Confirm'.

Applying the theme to your entire Confluence site

If you have site administrator permissions, you can apply the theme at site level. It will then be the default theme for all spaces in the site. See the administrator's guide to applying a theme.

Customising the Look and Feel of the Easy Reader Theme

You can customise the space CSS style sheets to change the colours, background image and other styles in the theme. See the guide to using CSS to customise the Easy Reader theme.

Hints and Tips

If a page has content that is very wide, it will either:

  • cause a scroll bar to appear, or
  • break out, i.e. the content will extend over the right-hand border of the page.
