Hide Recently Modified Items

Hide Recently Modified Items


In SharePoint 2010 we all are familiar with the following annoying quicklaunch menu:




Follow these steps : 
  1. Go to  "Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\Template\DocumentTemplates" .
  2. Open "wkpstd.aspx" file.
  3. Search for tag "SharePoint:RecentChangesMenu".
  4. Add visible="false"  at the end of this tag.
  5. Save this file & refresh SharePoint site .

This won;t work for those of us that don;t have access to the server files. How and where is the line on the Master file, so I can find it there and edit it on my master? I can't seem to see the line where this sneaky thing is hidden.

I have updated the page but how do I "refresh Sharepoint site"??

Gaurav Goyal said...

Use F5 key to refresh the site in internet explorer.

I tried refreshing the screen several times within IE after updating the page mentioned on the server before asking the question, but I am still seeing the Recently Modified Items. What am I missing???

to refresh you are better off with an iisreset, stylings get cached a lot and are a thorn while you are developing the branding.

Thanks! This is the easiest method I've seen if you have access to the required file.

How can I hide for specific site?

Gaurav Goyal said...

If you want to hide specific site then you have to use this CSS code :

.s4-recentchanges
{
display:none;
}
