Removing Page Title from PDF Export

Is there a way to remove the page title from my PDF export? I have tried changing several things in the stylesheet but so far have not succeeded. 

I am attempting to use confluence for company procedures and want more control over the title of the procedure & therefore have included it in the body of the page. So I need to remove the page title from the export so that it is not displayed twice.

Hi Joanne,

In my 5.6.4 instance, I'm able to hide page titles in the PDF export by adding the following CSS to the PDF Stylesheet, located in the Administration console:

.pagetitle h1, .pagetitle h2 { display: none; }

The first selector removes the title on single page exports, and the title of the home page in space exports. Using the second selector will remove the titles of child pages in space exports. Please try this out to see if it suits your needs.



Hi Brian. 

Your suggestion helps remove the main title, h1 and h2. However, I just want to remove the main titile, not the headings. How can I do this?


Hi! In Confluence Server 6.13 this solution doesn't work. You could use this code instead:

display: none;

The original question had its birthday already, but I had similar problem and wanted to share. I was wondering how to remove title page from PDF export.

This is easy to do. Just remove all "PDF Space Export Title Page" definitions in Space Operations AND also in Confluence's General configuration. Those definitions are located under Look and Feel / PDF Layout -categories in both settings groups, in space specific and in general settings.

Best regards,



my PDF space export title page definitions are empty by default. how can I remove page title from pdf export?


Edit: The solution for applying pdf stylesheet to display:none works!
