    Sharepoint 2007 Quick Launch

    How do you make the quick launch bar only available to, say, a select group of users whilst other groups of users don't get to see it?

    I can't see a way of actually doing it (hiding it) without including everybody.

    hi

    i dont know if i have understood your requirement fully but you can use a Content editor web part combined with audience targeting.

    - create a security group on the AD and add the users for which you dont want to display the launch bar

    - create the audiences in your SSP and add the security group created above in this audience for whom you dont want the launch bar to be displayed

    - compile the audience

    - on the page you want to hide the quick launch bar add the Content Editior Web part

    - open it in source editor

    - add the below code

    <style>
    .ms-quicklaunch
    {
    display:none;
    }
    .ms-navframe
    {
    display: none;
    }
    </style>

    - once this has been added go to advance settings of the web part and set the audience targetting. Add the group you created and complied above.

    hope this helps

    I didn't know there was actually two different versions of SharePoint: MOSS 2007 and WSS 3.0, of which I am using the latter. Turns out I can't implement what you've suggested, though the code does hide the quick launch bar completely.

    In my case I think I have a way of doing it in the sense that if I just completely disable it, I can still access whatever links there were in the quick launch bar via site settings. A bit of a pain otherwise I'd have to purchase Visual Studio to do what I want it to do.
