Can I do it with app “Custom CSS
Can you give me a hint how to hide this “shared by …” ?

Make a copy of nextcloud theme.
You can use any browser to inspect html code and find target element.
Change respective css code.

For details see:

Theming + Custom CSS:

#header .header-shared-by {
	display: none;

This works great! Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Be aware that both the username (data-owner) and the display name (data-owner-display-name) of the user who shares the file are in the source code of the page!

EDIT: And we have to say a big Thanks! to @juliushaertl for this great Custom CSS app! Hopefully we can use it with Nextcloud 14 too. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Follofing this manual I made a copy of theme. But I can’t find a file where are situated this source code

I nailed it with Theming + Custom CSS:! :grinning:

 h2 {
 display: none;

Too easy change one file - apps\files_sharing\lib\Controller\ShareController.php line 455
From -
$response->setHeaderDetails($this->l10n->t(‘shared by %s’, [$shareTmpl[‘displayName’]]));
To -
$response->setHeaderDetails($this->l10n->t(‘shared by %s’, Anonymous));

Where can I find this code? In themes -> example -> css I don’t have a css file.
