Can you disable or hide the Page History for a confluence space?

Jason Apel February 21, 2024

Hello All,

We have a public space that is user for customer information sharing. We found that the page history was visible to the public which is not something we don't want. It makes sense for a business change management process but for a public page this can cause confusing why content was changed and also exposes the name of the person that made the change.

Thanks

Hi @Jason Apel If you would like to remove/hide some of the Confluence specific elements on a public space (like the page history, but also the last updated date or author, the Space settings in the side panel, etc), Spacecraft could be a good solution for you (btw, I work with the vendor behind the app).

It allows you to make a public Confluence space available at a custom domain, and then to configure which elements you want to display/hide. You can see an example on the Spacecraft documentation.

Have you tried the page properties and edit  the Restrictions to the space?

You can hide information on the page by using page properties and then combine that with edit restrictions on the page.

Hello @Mark Hitt

This is a public page so we are not applying restrictions. Can I confirm you have achieved this and hidden the History page from a site?

Thanks
