We want to use Builder to force a single global layout/style for all blogs (personal blogs and public space blogs) without affecting our existing space themes. We use Default Theme and Documentation Theme. We have 190 spaces. The entire wiki is wrapped in the following html:
We use Firefox exclusively. Our goals for the blogs are as follows:
1. Paragraph width of 700px
2. Calendar to also appear in public space blogs (in Confluence 3.3x, the calender only appears in personal blogs)
3. Maybe some additional sidebar content via macro.
On the CONF-4174 page , Guy Fraser suggested we use the builder-show and builder-hide macros, but I'm not exactly clear on how that should be done. I'm not sure if Guy is suggesting we create 2 Builder theme's which mimic our existing theme structure for all spaces (ie we create Builder theme which replace the standard themes) but have a different layout for blogs via the builder-show and builder-hide macros, or whether he is saying I can use those macros somehow within the existing structure (ie without needing every space to use a Builder theme instead of the existing themes). We do have the latest Theme Builder installed but dont use it for themes. Obviously my preference would be to achieve my goal without changing our global/space themes - I'd prefer to find a way to add code which only affects blogs and leaves the remainder of each space unchanged.
Has anyone here done something like this with Builder?
Any hints, tips, pointers would be greatly appreciated.
