Whilst customising our SPS installation various people were complaining of all the admin links down the left hand side.
So we thought about removing them, but how do you then edit.
I stumbled across configurator, really handy to see what can be done when customising area templates, and I remembered that this had removed all the admin links like change settings.
Well it hadnt removed them it just ensured that these links only appeared when in edit mode, a much better solution (why is this notthe default ?)
So the items for your <spswc:toolbar> that need hiding can have the value “EditOnly” instead of Both. Don’t ask me what the other value is.
Thanks to Stuart Estell for assistance on this one.
