    Simply hide unwanted elements in the macro dialog and instantly preview the effects of HideElements for Confluence (New in Version 2.1.0). So no need to save the macro settings and reload the whole page anymore!

    To be more precise you can hide every default element on pages and blog posts as you please- with just one click!

    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).

    More details

    Often times pages and blog posts in Confluence seem to be overloaded with buttons, meta-information, and an enormous amount of comments. At some point you might desire a cleaner layout for certain pages. Using HideElements, you are now able to hide different components from Confluence pages. Disable and enable comments, likes, share and other functionalities as you please. It's your page, so customize it!

    Just add the macro from the macro browser to your page, 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.
