Apply CSS to Confluence administration

I managed to get rid of the create page button in the dashboard with the following CSS: 

.dashboard #create-page-button { display:none; }

Now I am trying to do the same from the Confluence administration pages.

I have tried the following but it does not work. Any idea how else to identify the administration pages?


.admin-body #create-page-button { display:none; }


Thanks for assistance.

The global stylesheet is not applied to pages under Confluence Admin. You must put it in custom html inside style elements.

Could be that I am doing something wrong, but it does not seem to work.

I went to the "Custom HTML" section in the "Confluence administration" page and inserted the following code in the "At the end of the HEAD" field: 

<style type="text/css">
.admin-body #create-page-button {

But when I view the source of the page (after reload of course) the element is not present (and not applied).

Have I misunderstood your suggestion?

No, that should work. Give "at the end of body" a try too? That is where I have some styles (for something else) for Confluence Admin and it works just fine.

Even if I do not understand the difference... putting it at the end of body works just fine.
