How to disable the Create button


Good day!

I wanted to know on how to disable the create button at the top (see attached)create button.png even if a user has access in editing a page. Or how to restrict a user adding a page but he/she can edit a page?

Dear Gabrielle,

I have not done so myself, but I believe you can achieve this by using CSS with Confluence, grabbing the Div ID of the button and making it a display;none. However.. you will need to play around a little bit with that because I am not sure if that Div ID is being used elsewhere.

Documentation for CSS with Confluence

A second option, which I have seen in action is the following;

Refined Theme, a popular add-on for Confluence enables you to alter specific elements, including the create button on the dashboard. This person has the same use case as yours and succeeded with this add-on.

I hope this answer can be of use,
