Hide several Confluence page elements - e.g. title, comments, buttons - with just one click
Just hide unwanted elements in the macro dialog and instantly preview the effects of HideElements for Confluence. No need to save the macro settings and reload the whole page!
You can select which default elements on pages and blog posts you'd like to hide - with only one click!
Additionally hide custom elements by entering a valid CSS selector. The possibilities are endless.
The difference is clearly visible: Here you can see how a default page looks with all elements shown and all elements hidden (Click for full screen).
Pages and blog posts in Confluence can often seem overloaded with buttons, meta-information, and an enormous amount of comments. Sometimes you might just want a cleaner layout for certain pages. Using HideElements for Confluence, you can now hide different Confluence pages components. Disable and enable comments, likes, any buttons and other elements as you please. It's your page, so customize it!
Just add the macro to your page from the macro browser, check the checkboxes next to the elements you'd like to hide and there you go.
It won't work if it's placed inside a comment, so pranksters won't have a chance. You can also temporarily disable the macro using a URL parameter. Check out our documentation for further information.
These elements can be hidden:
- Create button
- Page title
- Meta Information
- Tool buttons on the top right (Edit, Share, etc.)
- ...and anything else via a CSS selector!
