Disable likes

Clicking like on a piece of content sends the author a notification, and is useful for letting users know that you've viewed, approved of, or enjoyed a piece of content. Content that receives a large number of likes appears on the Popular tab of the Activity section in the sidebar. Some sites, especially ones that have external users, may prefer not to have likes enabled for reasons such as cross-client confidentiality. 

By default, likes are enabled, but a site administrator (see Manage global permissions) can disable and re-enable likes for their entire Confluence Cloud site at any time.

To enable or disable likes:

  1. If you aren’t already there, go to your Confluence Cloud site.

  2. Select the settings wheel () in the top right corner to open site settings.

  3. Select Further Configuration from the sidebar (under Configuration).

  4. Select Edit.

  5. Select or deselect the Enable Likes checkbox.

  6. Select Save.
