Our hope is that the Brand Designer will make creating a brand a snap. It's a powerful tool, however, and there's a lot packed in there. Click on the tabs below for tips on using the Brand Designer.

As you begin making changes to your editable brand, the Configuration menu  will include options for undoing your changes:



Custom JavaScript? Lose the script tags...

When adding custom JavaScript via the Brand Designer, be sure to provide only JavaScript (i.e., omit the HTML <script> tags).  To upload custom JavaScript or CSS follow these instructions, or use the Brand Designer's Custom CSS and JavaScript tab (for Zen 5.2 and later).

Click here if bad custom JavaScript has broken Zen (pre-Zen 5.2.8 only)

Error uploading image using the Brand Designer

When trying to upload an image using the Images panel Zen's Brand Designer, you may get the following error:

  • Could not upload the file to Confluence. The server may be unavailable.

This happens when you don't have temporary access to administrative functions. You can get around this two ways:

  1. Access the Admin Console and enter your password. This will turn on the access to admin functions (and you'll see a message banner on all pages indicating this).
  2. Disable "Secure administrator sessions" from the Security Configuration panel in the Admin Console. This shouldn't be done on publicly accessible servers, but you're developing on a test server behind the firewall, or on your local computer, right?

(This is a known bug that was fixed in Zen 5.2.4.)
