My group is building a product manual/knowledge base for our customers. We want it to be read-only for them, which was easy to set up, but there were a few more capabilities that are proving harder to remove. At this point we just need to hide a few items, namely Browse, Tools and the little edit link in a user's profile.
Browse and Tools need to be hidden mostly to keep users from poking at them and getting confused, we've used the Menu Manager plugin to remove any potential problem items from both lists.
Some of our users will have shared logins, so it is imperative that they not be able to edit their profiles and change their passwords. We haven't found a way to block the capability entirely, but hiding the link should keep them from trying.
We've been looking for solutions for a while and haven't had any luck. We need all of these features for our own internal use, so we can't turn them off completely. If anyone can point us in the right direction, that would be great.
And here it is link for a plugin:
That plugin indicates you can manage the menu items, not sure if it is that what you're looking for.
This is the plugin:
Yes, we have both of those plugins. Menu Manager allowed us to thin out many unwanted items, but it works across all groups at once. If I used that to disable Browse and Tools I wouldn't be able to use or see them myself, and I still need them.
Visibility has been a bit of a let down so far, it uses macros to hide page content, since it's all wiki markup I can't use the hide-if macro in custom layouts. All the things I want to hide are not within the reach of Visibility it seems.
And yeah, if we had an older version of confluence that first link probably would work, unfortunately it's been less than functional ;)
Well, we've *hopefully* found ways to disable browse and profile editing, but hiding that Tools button remains an annoying blemish with no discernable solution. So, let's focus on that, hiding the Tools button from certain users/groups.
