Can I hide elements from only anonymous users via CSS?

I can hide elements from anonymous users via JavaScript, but this usually introduces some flicker, since I have to wait for AJS to initialize.

To avoid the flicker, is there a way to do this directly via CSS, that is, to check for some CSS class specific to anonymous or logged-in users?

I haven't been able to spot any such classes in Confluence page code. If there indeed are none, would this be a technically feasible or sensible feature to request from Atlassian?

I think it would basically be enough to add a class to the <body> or some other high-level element when the user is or is not logged in. I guess this could also be an element attribute rather than a class, since you can also check for attribute values with CSS.

Hi Timo,

I'm afraid no id/class/... is added when an Anonymous user opens your Confluence site. 

You can suggest this feature via jira.atlassian.com if you'd like.

Best,

Maarten

Thanks for the info, Maarten. I'll submit a request.

Cheers,

Timo

I noticed that there are metadata related to signed in users:

<meta name="ajs-remote-user" content="username">
<meta name="ajs-current-user-fullname" content="User's Name">

But you can only read metadata with JavaScript. I cannot access <meta> tags with CSS.

Why don't you make the opposite?
Keep those HTML elements hidden until you detect by JS that the user is logged in to display for him!
