Add-On Type(s)



Take control of your control panel menus! CP Menu Master allows you to hide channels from the publish menu for ALL users, show channels as a sub-menu in the edit menu, and even display control panel menus on mouse-over instead of click. Think of all those seconds you will save!

This is a rewrite of our Hidden Channels module, which used javascript to solve this problem (hacking the menu after it had been loaded). However, often this was causing issues, so this version is completely javascript free, and modifies the menus before EE displays them.

Please note: This add-on does not enforce any kind of security to prevent users publishing to channels. It simply removes links from the publish menu, to reduce clutter. Smart users can still publish to those channels by bookmarking or accessing the correct URL.

I’ve used this on countless installations, and wish it was a function built in to EE - great way to keep customers from publishing new entries instead of editing existing ones.

Works great in EE 2.7.2

It is broken under EE v. 2.6 Don’t use it until it’s updated!

I would also like to see it assigned by user group, but highest priority for me is for MSM support which the developer has chosen not to include.

A great thing for adding more Usability to the CP Panel.
However it shout be editable by user-group.
And it should be able to hide any other button as well (I have to give my members rights for the a don section due to a special field type and I’d like to hide this as well)
Then it would be 5 stars+

It will be perfect if I can choose user group to limit!

Excellent, excellent addition. Exactly what i was looking for. The edit and non clicks are extra bonus material. Great work!

These tweaks are all key to any CP experience.

The “display menus on hover” thing alone has been a long-standing gotcha for me! This add-on fixes it. Hallelujah!
