How to remove "Created by ," after using this code?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How to hide content author name (created by) in a page

The following code added to the Stylesheet removes the author's name, but leaves the text snippet "Created by ," which looks odd.

Q. How do you remove that snippet as well?


#com-atlassian-confluence .page-metadata .author {

Hi Frances, 

Just remove the .author to remove all the page metadata. 

#com-atlassian-confluence .page-metadata {

Let me know if I misunderstood the question. 


Hi Maggie,

I have the same problem, I think the issue is that if you add the code to the StyleSheet, your page still displays the phrase 'Created by'.

In other words, you end up with something like:

"Created by , last modified on Feb 05, 2018"

The code insert removes the name, not the Created by phrase.

Ideally, what's left would be "Created on DATE" or "Modified on DATE".

Any thoughts on that?
