How to remove the "Reasons to use Nextcloud in your organization"

I find that very spammy and kinda annoying, my family already uses nextcloud and I don’t mind the

Developed by the Nextcloud community, the source code is licensed under the AGPL.

But that button is very annoying and kinda stupid, if someone is already using nextcloud why is that there? So How do I remove that?

try custom css app (Custom CSS - Apps - App Store - Nextcloud)
#open-reasons-use-nextcloud-pdf {display:none;}


Thank you @amarillo!

Not so happy about these ads either.

The brutal solution which also removes the social media garbage:

truncate -s 0 apps/settings/templates/settings/personal/development.notice.php

P.S.: I don’t want custom css for every single request just to remove that nuisance on one single page.


Thank you so much @tessus

Unfortunately the snap doesn’t let you edit this file… UGH.

When I deleted, it went into internal server error mode (I cannot run any root commands as on shared hosting). So, I made the file

to make that section blank. Will have to do with every update, I presume. But okay till I do not have to face the stuff. Thanks for this guide mate. :slight_smile:

this didn’t do anything for me (nc 24)
the ad is still displayed in user profil …

i’ve opened apps/settings/css/settings.scss and added ‘display: none;’

// Button for ‘Reasons to use Nextcloud in your organization’
.development-notice {
text-align: left;
display: none;

it works for me, no need of custom css

Here are my 2 cents for NC version 24

Go into your installation directory example here /var/www/nextcloud

cd themes
cp -r example custom_name
echo “#open-reasons-use-nextcloud-pdf { display: none; }” |sudo tee -a custom_name/core/css/server.css
nano custom_name/defaults.php

Name your cloud instance in the last file. defaults.php

Add ’theme’ => ‘custom_name’, to your config.php

keep a backup of this folder custom_name.

im new please… where does this go…


was there an update for


why? have you had the ad back?
