How to hide #user-menu-link for a special usergroup?

Hi guys,

my question today is: How to hide #user-menu-link for a special usergroup using ajs?

confluence-readonly should be the usergroup.

I've tried some ajs, but nothing works fine for me


<script type="text/javascript">



    if ($userAccessor.hasMembership('<confluence-readonly>', AJS.params.remoteUser)){

You have mixed velocity with javascript, it doesn't work like this i am afraid. Javascript knows nothing about useraccessor, pagemanager etc.

Thanks Panos,


it works for me. But how can i place the macro to all pages additionally without editing all pages?


I can't test it out for you, but the guy in the answer i've linked demonstrates how to put this code in all pages. Did you try it?

Hi, guy from the answer here smile

If you're running a newer version of Confluence, you should also be able to use the same syntax as I mentioned for the documentation theme.  You'll need to click on the Gear icon, go to "General Configuration", and under "Look and Feel" click the "Sidebar, header and footer" link, and you could probably stick it in either the header or the footer box.
