How do I make only Scaffolding's Edit Contents button visible in Confluence editor?

There are times when admin wants users to edit Scaffolding forms via the "Edit Contents" button, but do not want them to edit the underlying Scaffolding structure via the "Edit" button available on Confluence editor.

To achieve this, admin can add the {HTML} macro to the required page and include the following CSS in the body of the HTML macro:

<style type="text/css"> #editPageLink { display:none!important; } </style>

Save the page and the default "Edit" button is no longer visible and only the "Edit Contents" button remains.


  • This will only work if you've enabled the HTML macro on your Confluence instance.
  • This method only hides the Edit button. You can still edit the page using the keyboard shortcut "e".
