[SOLVED] Edit Items in CB Menu Plugin

10 years 1 month ago #130261 by GoremanX
How do I change the items that are generated by the CB Menu plugin? Many of them (like Update User Profile) are already visible elsewhere on my site constantly and I'd like to make it smaller and more manageable. I'd also like to change its layout.

Best approach is to use CSS to disable menu items rather then making changes to the core file responsible for generating the menu (cb.menu.php). Please see example below.

#menu1 {
display: none;

Please note the above is just an example; please use Firebug for Firefox to examine your menus elements and see what Classes or IDs you need exactly to properly create the CSS necessary for hiding the element.

Yeah that's what I ended up doing, among other things. It's unfortunate that this menu isn't editable.

There is some problem with this approach though. As menuitems css id can change.

I want to hide the "View -> View your profile" menu element, which for normal user is #menu1.

But for users who is able to edit other users detail (moderator / admin i.e) the "View -> View your profile" menu element get assigned #menu2, because the "Edit -> Edit user profile" menu element is assigned to the #menu1 css element.

Any hints on resolving this case?

How can this thread be marked as "solved"?

Making menu items "disappear" with CSS is a bit of smoke and mirrors. Is there another solution?
