How to remove page info message in the default space header

I need to remove the "Added by" and "Last edited by" message in the default space header. I am not currently familiar with CSS and would like to do this ASAP.

Does anyone know what to paste into the CSS Editor to remove that line, or at minimum keep it from exporting to .HTML? There is also an Attachments section added at the bottom of each .HTML page we would prefer wasn't there.

In Confluence Admin | Look & Feel | Custom HTML

Paste into At the end of the HEAD:

  #com-atlassian-confluence .page-metadata {
    display: none;

This will hide the "Added by" etc section from all spaces even if they've applied a separate custom stylesheet.

Thank you David, it did stop displaying the line in Confluence.

The line still exports to HTML, along with the "Attachments:" title and link at the bottom. I tried unchecking the Include Comments box in Custom Export but both items are still showing on the HTML page.

I imagine there is some default export template to deal with for this.

Do you have access to the decorators? If so, you can comment out the lines that render this information on the page.

In the "Page Layout" template you can remove or comment out this line to get rid of the "Added by" and "Last edited by" section of the page.

#parse ("/decorators/includes/page-metadata.vm").
