(grey lightbulb) A Zen Master Page defines the standard side columns for all pages that use it.

(grey lightbulb) Master page side columns can only be edited from this page.


(grey lightbulb) Use the Page Display Details option in the CONFIGURATION toolbar menu (the "gear") to toggle display of:

  • Page Title
  • Author, Lasted Edited
  • Labels
  • Comments

(grey lightbulb) Content in this middle column will not appear anywhere else. Your regular page contents will replace this center section.

(grey lightbulb) Use this center column to "park" sections you don't want to show on all pages, but don't want to delete yet.

(grey lightbulb) If you want to add images or other attachments to the columns on the master page, you must make sure to reference page they are attached to.

Please note: Due to a link editor feature in Confluence, you cannot display or link to attachments on the .zen.master page itself. Move the attachment to another page and link to it there.

For example, if you refer to attachments on another page, reference the page title in the link editor's Advanced tab, like so:
