Is it possible do hide the byline?

I use the documentation theme and want to hide the byline or show it in the footer. Is it possible to do this just for one space an not for the whole documentation theme?

You'll need to customise the theme's Page Layout (ie. page.vmd) to achieve this.

You'll need to edit confluence-install/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/com/atlassian/confluence/setup/atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip/doctheme-x.x.jar/doctheme/decorators/page.vmd and remove the following line of code:

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

So you need to either extract the jar, modify and rezip it to atlassian-bundled.plugins.zip, or you upload the modified jar as a plugin which will replace the bundled one. You might want to refer to this documentation.

Sorry, what text are you trying to hide?

I mean the text bellow the page title, where the author and the "Last editor" are shown.

How can I make the metadata be seen by logged in users only?
