Removing "Page actions" from HomePage

posts: 24 United States

This is in Tiki Wiki 16.2. I'm attempting to remove much of the UI from the HomePage in an effort to simplify its appearance. I cannot find a way to remove the "Page actions" menu that defaults to the top right. I have found that Control Panel > Wiki and using advanced options that there is an option "Wiki top line location". Changing this to neither will remove Page actions from all pages. Is there a way to specifically target the HomePage and leave it on all other pages? I tried using permissions to specifically target the HomePage but see no option to do so.

Thanks for any help you can lend.

Hello David! You got it? I am trying to do the same (June 2020), but I cannot.

I would appreciate any suggestion or comment.

Thanks in advance!

Hello,

There is no option per page to hide this action menu. (unless someone hide it somewhere) ?
And yes, in 2020 it is some kind of getting in the way. ;-)

This is how I do depending my customer needs or the site design;

  1. I move it to the bottom (you never know...)
  2. I hide it using CSS.
    • Get in the source code the id of the page ie:
      
      
    • Add in your css the following (tiki21):
      #page_23 .wikiactions_wrapper {display:none}

    It is not very elegant but do the work (if you have a few pages)
    Note that it can be added using Control Panel => Look & Feel => Miscellaneous => Custom CSS. Still it is better to know what you are doing than just copy paste.?


Hope this help

p.s. You can also do this for individual groups, so to hide it for anonymous but have it available for logged in users you can use:

.grp_Anonymous .wikiactions_wrapper {
	display: none;
}


(you need to enable the "Add group CSS info" layout_add_body_group_class pref on the Look and Feel control panel)

Sounds very interesting, thanks! But I prefer to use the simpler approach. I have been working with Tiki for a year and I think it is great, but the community documentation is an opportunity for serious improvement.

Thanks Bernard, that's more or less what i was going to suggest - but to add just one more way, you could use Perspectives, but the css way is definitely the simplest here i think.
