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.

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
- 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.
