Hide Child Page List

Hide Child Page List

A source of annoyance for me on our internal Confluence installation is the default list of child pages at the bottom of every page. I finally found a solution on Sarah Maddox’s blog post Confluence tip – how to hide child pages in the Documentation theme.

These instructions are tested on the Documentation space theme. If you are using a different theme in your space, it may not work.


You must be the space administrator to make this change. If you’re not the administrator, suggest this to the administrator.


  1. Go to Browse > Space Admin > Stylesheet.
  2. Add/edit the stylesheet.
  3. Paste this code in the box.
  4. #children-section{display:none;}

  5. Save and rejoice!
