That is the same thing that I sent the link for. Using the css macro, not configuration files.

ok, sorry for that. New to Confluence so still searching and finding out how to do things.

Updated solution:

 Matt's solution worked for me until a recent Confluence Cloud update; some page titles were getting partially hidden.


A new solution (provided by a colleague):

As before,  go to Space tools > Look and Feel > Sidedbar, header and footer tab. Add the following code to the spaces WIKI Markup header field:

{style}.ByLine_root_1io {margin: 0;}.ByLine_avatarWrapper_1Wi {display: none;}.ByLine_root_1io .ByLine_textContainer_juD {display: none;}{style}


This worked for me - thanks! 

As of 2017-09-27, you will now get a warning in your header/footer if you use CSS there:



Is there a work around this issue ?

How i can hide author in confluence ondemand?

Any news on this Atlassian Support ?

We're not support, we're a community of end users.

My understanding is that Atlassian are not going to change this back, the architecture is not able to support it (in favour of supporting other stuff they do want to do)

Oh my bad. But thats a shame, it's really annoying and not always necessary...

To remove the meta data from a Confluence ondemand space one method is to use WIKI markup in the header of the space.  Note:  You will need to be a space admin to make this update

Navigation:  Space tools --> Look and Feel --> Sidedbar, header and footer tab


Add the following code to the spaces WIKI Markup header field:

{style} .page-metadata {display: none;} {style}


Thanks for the solution Matt. It worked as of last week; unfortunately, today (October 24, 2016) it looks like this solution is no longer valid (my spaces have the meta data under the page titles again).



I'm using Confluence OnDemand version and dont have access to any configuration files.

The aimed use for Confluence is public documentation and there is no need to show when a page has been created or modified and by whom. If a removal of this info is not possible just being able to hide it is a start.



I did find this from Confluence's support pages and this worked. Included in a template in a CSS Stylesheet macro, the page doesn't show the user and created/updated info.

display:none !important;

It's for Confluence Server
