Templates are pre-built layouts in the Page Builder available in Refined Sites for Confluence and Refined Sites for JSM.

They can be easily customized by changing colors and photos; adding, removing, or moving modules on the page; adding View Permissions to limit access for certain users; and adding your corporate logo.

Conveniently, we’ve done the work of thinking through what the page should contain, and how to arrange its contents, so that you don’t have to.

How do I use templates?

Simply create a site and choose a template in the Page Builder that works for your users and the type of site you’re building. Or, add on to an existing site with a new landing page housing one or more Confluence spaces and/or JSM portals. If you’d like, you can tweak it to your liking by swapping in your logo, adjusting the color palette to reflect your brand, and rearranging or swapping out modules so that your choice of content is displayed on the page.

Once you choose a template, you can modify it to your liking as you would any other page in the Page Builder.

There are a number of ways to customize Refined templates:

  • Switch up the layout: Add or remove modules and rows, and change the way they're arranged or sized on the page.
  • Apply your brand: Swap in your brand colors, corporate logo, and  images.
  • Control access: Set access permissions on modules to govern who see’s what, with the goal of limiting access to sensitive information, or serving up only relevant info and resources to your various user groups.
