Will this work for confluence on demand?

David Simpson Community Leader May 22, 2013

No, sorry - you can't edit HTML in OnDemand :(

Josh Resnick Apr 27, 2014

how about footer? doing the same seems to leave a white bar at the bottom

Brad Schafer Nov 07, 2014

Are there plans to add either an HTML editor or an option to hide it in the OnDemand version?

Is it possible to do this for just one space?

When I browse to Browse > Space Admin. In Look and Feel, I see only these options: Themes Colour Scheme PDF Layout PDF Stylesheet Change Space Logo

Yea I can't hide it as well, I want to be my documentation public and don't need top nav bar.Why it's so hard to hide it?

A similar style hack can be done for Confluence for Cloud. This solution uses the CSS Style macro. The only problem is that it will hide the nav bar for all users, so you have to learn to use the keyboard shortcuts if you have write permissions

Go to Space Tools | Look and Feel | Sidebar, header and footer

Paste in one of those (I tested on header)

#header {
		display:none !important;
