This article will hide the "Delete" button in the Page History section:


Hide the element using CSS.

  • In the space where you want to hide that option go to Space Tools > Look and Feel.
  • Select the Stylesheet tab.
  • Add the following CSS code to your Space Stylesheet:
.remove-historical-version-trigger { 
display: none; 

This should hide the delete link in the history page for that space.

If changes should be applied to all spaces, add the CSS code above in Confluence Admin >> Stylesheet (Global Stylesheet)
