Hide edit-button / language tab

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Hello,

i would like to hide the "edit" button and the language tab. It is not necessary to deactivate it.
Is it possible to do this with the custom.css?
If i had one example how to hide it, i could work my way throug with the inspector/firebug so i can hide other buttons / tabs.

Thank you
Franz

Hi Franz,

You are editing via the front end of the site?

Is that correct

Hello,

i want to give a small number of users the right to create articels via the frontend.
For this i use the ark inline editor from arkextensions.com. The possible settings for the users are very restricted, for example the publishing is directly after the saving of the article.
So i want to hide every button on the frontend that is not absulutely necessary.
I neither need the button to get into the editing mode (this mode i reach through the inline editor) nor most of the buttons inside the editing mode (needed features will be provided by the editor itself).

Hope this was helpful.

Hi Franz,

You can change the template overide for the form-

\templates\buildr\html\com_content\form\edit.php

You edit the section listing the list elements

<ul class="zen-nav zen-nav-tabs">
<li class="active"><a href="#editor" data-toggle="tab"><?php echo JText::_('JEDITOR') ?></a></li>
<?php if ($params->get('show_urls_images_frontend') ) : ?>
<li><a href="#images" data-toggle="tab"><?php echo JText::_('COM_CONTENT_IMAGES_AND_URLS') ?></a></li>
<?php endif; ?>
<li><a href="#publishing" data-toggle="tab"><?php echo JText::_('COM_CONTENT_PUBLISHING') ?></a></li>
<li><a href="#language" data-toggle="tab"><?php echo JText::_('JFIELD_LANGUAGE_LABEL') ?></a></li>
<li><a href="#metadata" data-toggle="tab"><?php echo JText::_('COM_CONTENT_METADATA') ?></a></li>
</ul>

Try commenting out the lines not needed

Please back up the file first

Cheers,
Paul

With the edit button don't you need that to edit articles?
Does "ark inline editor" mean this isn't needed?

Hello,

no, i don´t need the edit button. I have made a screenshot for you. If you are on a page with any content or module you have the right to edit, the sidebar pops up and you can activate the edit-mode. Then you can click directly in any content you like to edit and a toolbar appears. To create a new article you can go on "new article" in the sidebar.
If you like to try the solution on my website, i can open a ticket.

With the modules you can turn off the edit icon I believe via the global configuration and the site tab

Setting being

"Mouse-over Edit Icons for"

Sorry, Ricardo, I'm not clear what you are referring to

Are you wanting to change a module or an article via the front end?

Is this what you are wanting to change? e.g. the tabs showing in an article

Hi Ricardo,

The style I suggested before removes these options


2017-09-14_23h11_01.png



.form-validate #options {
display: none;
}
