Hide the administrator's activity?

    I notice that there is in fact an option in user perms to allow/disallow viewing of site activity. However, it doesn't seem to "work".

    The reason why this is strange, at least to me, is that if somebody clicks on a post author, they are taken to a site activity page first, and then have to click the tab to see that user's posts. The relevant tab is not the automatic one.

    You can hide the activity for user groups but hiding just the admin activity for everyone would be something useful. It's better than deleting it.

    We were looking for a way to take out this Activity tab alltogether. We did so with a manual tweak. Not ideal, but it works. For those interested, go to applications/dashboard/views, and edit "default.master.php". Here you see a line that reads:

    $this->Menu->AddLink('Activity', T('Activity'), '/activity');

    Comment this line (that is, put // before it):

    // $this->Menu->AddLink('Activity', T('Activity'), '/activity');

    Now the Activity tab will not show at all.

    te200's comment helps comment out the activity tab on the site menu. I want to eliminate it when you navigate to a user page. When you go to a users page, you see notification, activity, discussions, comments tabs.... and when you land on someone other than your user page it defaults to activity tab. I want to hide that tab, and have the lading for that view on discussions.

    In effect, I want to eliminate the whole WALL concept from Vanilla and have it only show discussons and comments. How do I do this? I tried last year once for three days of hacking and found it virtually impossible.

    Please don't go down the "why do you want that?" road. Just understand I do. I don't want to argue about it, I just want instructions on how to do it.

    Cheers!

    and change the permissions for viewing activity in dashboard.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Another way to hide the Activity menu item is by CSS:

    #Menu .Activity{
    display: none;
    }

    This is not ideal either, but it works.
