Question/Problem Description

How to hide widgets in an auto-generated Details pages?

Error Message
Defect/Enhancement Number
This enhancement has not been implemented in the product.  As an alternative use one of the workarounds below.
1. Add a wrapper CSS class around the Content Block, e.g. hide-on-details. Then, in the Details view of the dynamic module, define this class as display:none;

2. Hide it using JavaScript in the Details view template - check the URL in the script and hide the Content Block's part of the DOM tree based on a condition.

3. Implement a custom Content Block widget - since Feather widgets are open source, an own version of the Content Block widget might be implemented by applying minor modifications to reach the goal in mind:

4. Use a Sitefinity page instead of auto-generated ones - that will give the developer control over what's rendered on the Details page.
