Archiving Inactive Spaces
Over the years, the amount of content in Confluence has grown so that there are more than 1,700 spaces. Atlassian, the makers of Confluence, tell us that we have a very large Confluence instance. A number of these spaces are inactive, and the content has not been updated for many years sometimes because the original creators and maintainers of the spaces have left the university. In order to keep Confluence running well for the users of actively maintained spaces, we are archiving a number of these inactive spaces. You can see a list under Spaces > Space directory > Archived category. The content remains in place, accessible and editable although it will not appear in search results unless you check the "Search archived spaces" checkbox.
Change spaces from "Documentation" to "Global Look and Feel" theme
Atlassian, the makers of the Confluence wiki, have been announcing for some time that they intend to retire the "Documentation" theme which controls the way some spaces appear. This theme will be replaced by the "Global Look and Feel" theme at the time when we upgrade to version 6.6 of Confluence. Confluence 6.6 is now available and we are planning an upgrade. If your space uses the "Documentation" theme, we encourage you to change the theme now at your leisure in advance of the forced change. We are now in the process of changing any remaining spaces which you have not changed. A space uses the "Documentation" theme if there is a "Browse" option in the top menu. More details.
