- At the top of the mashup builder, click Space Manager to open the space manager window.
- Click Create Space to open the Create Space window.
- In the Space Name field, type the name of the new space.
- In the Space Description field, type a brief description of the new space. If you publish this space to the catalog, others will be able to read the description to understand the purpose of the space.
- To make your space a favorite space, select Make this space a favorite space. Your favorite spaces are listed first in both the space selector and also in the space manager.
- Select one of the following options:
To create a default theme for all pages that you add to your space, select a theme on the right side of the dialog box. You can override this default theme on a page-by-page basis. For more information about changing page themes, see Customizing pages with content, styles, and layouts.
- Create a blank space: This option creates an empty space. Since spaces require at least one page, after you save your changes in the Create Space window, a new window will display with options for creating a page for the space.
- Create a new space from a template: This option creates a space from a template with predefined pages and widgets. When you start from a template, you can add and remove pages and widgets in the template to create your own custom space.
- Duplicate an existing space: This option creates a space that is exactly the same as one that already exists in your space selector. You can customize it as necessary.
Now, the new space name displays in your space selector and also in the space manager.
