How to remove "The following macros are not currently supported in the header:" notice ? Edited


I'm trying to add some custom CSS to my Conference Cloud instance.
To be exact I wanted to hide the comments section on the bottom...
I managed to do this via Space Settings > Look and Feel > Header and footer by adding this ;

display: none;

Since HTML macro is unsuported I get the following message : 


I cannot target the div where the message is shown + it seems that class/id's to this message are not static and at one point they change so my CSS rule is not valid anymore...

Can anyone share some wisdom on how to hide/remove this message as well ?

Hello Mario,

Thank you for bringing this up. That message is a result of the Style macro being removed from Confluence Cloud sites.

With the new look of Confluence, many of the CSS workarounds will no longer be possible. Per Functional differences in Confluence Cloud :

On Atlassian Cloud, Confluence uses a custom theme that can't be modified or updated using custom HTML or CSS. For more information on custom themes in Confluence Cloud, refer to Working with Themes.

Confluence Cloud Developer community: You can also create your own theme for Confluence Cloud. Check out the Theme page in our Confluence Cloud Developer page.

I'm sorry that you won't be able to hide the comments section at this time, but you can vote and follow the feature request below if you want to be updated on the availability of that feature:

  • CONFCLOUD-5639 Hide comments completely from certain users (add a hide comments permission?)

Thank you, and take care.



Thank for the feedback, much appricated :)
