I have tired this every way I could think of - the custom HTML and css in the stylesheet do not seem to hide this on my production doucmentaiton site. I even messed with the permissions to make it go away. It still remains visible. However, on my test machine ( my Windows laptop) it does not display. I cannot seem to figure out why I cannot hide it on my production documentation space. Any thoughts besides the plugin suggestion below? Thank you.
If your refer to the https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Create+from+Template+Macro you place in your pages, you may wrap the button macro inside a "hide macro", which decides to show or not show its body.
