Every Refined Site is set up in the Refined Configuration. Each site has a settings area where you manage the site, add Atlassian content, pages, navigation, set the look and feel, and searching.
Below is a walkthrough of a Refined Site Setup.
On this page
Each Site has a main Configuration area where you make the general settings for the site.
The Site Name is the site's friendly name.
The Subdomain is the URL you access the Refined Site from. If you decide to change sub-domain it will take a while before the site is accessible again, this is due to how DNS works on the Internet.
A Custom Domain can be added to a site. Learn more here: Set up Custom Domain
If this is disabled, any user will need to log in to see the site. If this is enabled anonymous - meaning not-logged in users - can access any content on the Refined Site and Page that is not hidden via Atlassian.
Site: Look and Feel
Each Site you add to Refined will have its own look and feel.
The Look and Feel area is where you set the Theme for the Refined Site.
Site Logo, Favicon, App Icon
Style your sites with logo on the site and icons in the browser and mobile.
Recently introduced you can now choose if you want your site to have breadcrumb navigation or drop down navigation. This is a site wide settings.
The Advanced Settings include the option to add additional CSS and HTML to the site.
Please note: while Refined offers the option for this customization, any issue caused by custom html or css are not covered by the SLA and support.
Site: Site Builder
The Site Builder is the essence of your Refined Site: This is where you build the Site Navigation Menu, add in Atlassian Cloud Content such as Confluence Spaces, Jira projects and Jira Service Desk portals.
Refined Pages - Pages
Any item added in the Site Builder will get a Refined Page. You can add a page to use as a landing page, and the same page can also be used as a container to hold other items such as another page - a child-page - or a Confluence space, for instance.
Items are added to your site in the Site Builder, and then edited for layout on the site itself, via the Layout Editor.
Site: Search Settings
A major advantage using Refined is the search possibilities - finding content that is there.
Recommended links consists of:
- name - what the user sees
- URL - where the link takes you
- match words - what words this will show up for
The recommended links can be added to any site, page, project, portal or space. This is an easy way to prompt users to go to the right place.
