You must have full administrative permissions in your space to perform these steps. This means access to the OwnerDocs, GroupDocs, SitePref, and Users tabs.

This document will explain how a KB Group Admin can hide the Document Information Table from view on their KB Live Site(s). This guide explains how to remove the table from the entire KB space or from a single KB document.

The Document Information Table summarizes basic information about KB document data. See KB User's Guide - Documents Tab - Document Information Table Live Site for more information.

The image below shows an example of a Document Information Table at the bottom of a document on a KB Live Site.
