Browse to Confluence Admin | Look & Feel | Custom HTML

Paste into At the end of the HEAD:

    if (AJS.params.remoteUser == ''){

Will this work for confluence on demand?

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

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

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;
