Firstly, an explanation of some terms you will see in this ThemeBuilder documentation

What is a Confluence Theme?

ThemeBuilder is a Theme in the sense that it can be selected as an alternative to the default Confluence theme in Confluence Administration > Look and Feel

 

What is a ThemeBuilder Skin?

A skin is the collection of editable panels that make up one whole page framework that can be applied to Confluence through ThemeBuilder. You can have multiple skins in the Skin Editor, and each can be applied automatically to individual spaces, pages, actions and similar options, to finely tune the user experience. 

In previous versions of Theme Builder a skin was called the layout.
