Hi Michael,

Thanks for your response. I wanted to hide particular tab from the left nav bar based on user role. Also, we are using DNN v. 09.02.01 (533) and it is default skin for left nav menu. I am not sure how/where to update in the skin ascx file for hiding particular tab from menu based on user role. Please let me know if I have to update at any specific place. I really appreciate your time.

Thank You!

Mahima,

it is as Daniel said. If a user is not allowed to view a page, then it is hidden from the menu (as long as you don't use a third-party menu or module for this that does not take care of permissions).

I think you should check the page permissions, maybe you have overseen something, e.g. checked View permissions for All Users or Subscribers or something alike).

Happy DNNing!
Michael

Well, if you have never built a Dnn module, this may be a bit overkill, but you could start in the Development section of this page https://www.dnnsoftware.com/videos there is a series of videos about module development. Then you would use the TabController, UserController, RoleController to do your logic.

Another idea that came to mind is that you could put some javascript or jQuery code in a module that is only visible by that role. That code would find that page in the menu and remove it...

But yeah, I see no easy built-in way to do this out of the box.

As far as I remember the DNN.Links module has this functionality (select "Menu" in the module settings).

 

Happy DNNing!
