Style Macro in New Confluence

We used the following macros in our confluence site to strip out information for home navigation pages. They are now not working since our site has been upgraded to the new look. Any idea of how to get them working now?


.page-metadata {display:none;}
#comments-section { display:none; }
#likes-and-labels-container { display:none; }
#main-header { display:none; }
#create-page-button { display:none; }
#footer { display:none; }
#quick-create-page-button { display:none; }

Hi Patrick,

Can you let us know where exactly on Confluence you put this CSS? Is it in a Confluence page, or is it on the overview page of a space?

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Hi Patrick,

In the old interface of Confluence, the page was rendered as one contiguous HTML document, so it was possible to use the style macro to affect other parts of the page.

Now that Confluence has been upgraded to the new interface, the page content is rendered as a separate iframe within the larger page. Therefore any style macro within the content will only affect the contents of the content window.

This is unlikely to change, so some sort of solution using the new theming functionality of Atlassian Connect apps will somehow have to fill the gap.
