Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hello all,

I need help in order to hide a link in wss3.0
of course this link should be visible to some users and hiddden for users who do not have access permission to the link.
currently when the users who do not have the right to the page when they click on the link they get access denied but I want to remove/hide the link so that they don't click on the link to get the access denied message!!
The link I'm trying to hide is located in quick launch.

I have be trying to do it wih-in the wss3.0 platform but seems that there is no solution for it with-in the platform.
 could you please tell me it it has to be done programatically or there is any way which can be done from the platform itself.

has anyone done this before??

please guide me

Remove/Hide empty space of quick launch from web part page


I created a document library, whose type is "Web Part Pages". When I create a new web part page in this document library the quick launch is missing from the pages. There's a gap on the left side of the web part page for about 200px where the quick luanch would have been.

I don't necessarily want the quick launch to show up at this point. But I don't want the empty space in there either. I would prefer that the web part page covers the empty space on the left side. Can you please advise how to fix this? I had created a subsite before where I don't have this problem.

Let me know if it's not clear about what I mentioned above. Unfortunately I can't post an image here to show what I'm referring to.
