how to remove the 'allow sharing' check box in the edit blog mode in confluence ?

hi Guys,

I want to remove the allow sharing check box (in the edit blog mode), which when checked shares content on facebook, twitter and google sharing, this is an option that my organisation does not want for security reasons. Just not clicking the check box is not a valid option we want to remove altogether. Can anybody help me with this ? I've provided a screen shot below of the check-box.

Thanks in advance,

Hello Karl,

You can use Firebug inspect element or any other browserdeveloper tool as means to get to the element name for that checkbox.

Later, please refer to our styling guide and add {display:none; visibility:hidden;} next to the element/container name.

Hope this helps you to get started with such task!

thanks Guilherme,

Is it the same if the blog is part of refined wiki ?



This is a solution that worked for me , just removed the check box .

i added this code to Confluence admin > look and feel > stylesheet



(Note that the title and help text will still be there)

I'm not sure, but maybe this plugin could help you without disabling the feature:
