How To Hide Start Blog Buttons in Lotus Connections

View Comments

Here's another tip which I thought would be useful to a lot of you. While working with a customer last week, they asked me how to configure Blogs for a very specific use case. Specifically, they were looking to do the following:

  • The Blogs module should be enabled
  • Anyone can comment on blogs
  • Anyone can rate blogs
  • Only two people can create blogs / blog entries

I figured the easiest way to do this was to hide the "Start A Blog" and "Create Blog Entry" buttons. The magic happens in this file:


Comment out the two <span> tags (one is for 'Start a Blog', the other is for 'New Entry')


Once you edit the .vm file, you'll need to restart the Blogs server for the changes to go into effect.
