View Menu Structure

The View menu is added to the menu bar automatically in Builder 1.6, between the pre- and post- menus.

Menu Structure

The table below shows the following information about each item on the View menu in Theme Builder 1.6:

  • Menu Item – the caption, in English, of the menu item. A — denotes a menu separator
  • Scope – defines whether the item is available at space level, global level or all levels
  • Contexts – defines the context(s) where the item is applicable, eg. page, blogpost (news item), etc. Some contexts have features which are only available from a specific version of Confluence onwards, for example: blogpost:2.1.5
  • Classes – the CSS class name associated with the item. Classes shown in italics indicate the class name of the sub-menu associated with the item
  • Permissions – a summary of the main permissions required to see the menu item (other permissions may apply, only basic permissions are listed here). Separators are shown if required depending on visibility of items before and after the separator.

If you require more control over the menu, please upgrade to Theme Builder 2 or above.

Customising the View Menu

Although you can't directly edit items in the View menu, you can use CSS to hide or alter items based on their class names. For more information please see View and Edit Menus.
