It's not possible to easily configure the menu items that appear in the "Sites" menu in the new header bar. Although it is possible by extending the "alfresco/header/AlfSitesMenu" widget it would be preferable to be able to modify default boolean values on the widget to control what is and isn't displayed.

This was raised as a result of a forums discussion: http://forums.alfresco.com/forum/end-user-discussions/alfresco-share/make-options-header-admin-only-alfresco-42d-09022013-1746

I've added the following boolean configuration options (all of which default to true):

  • "showCreateSite" (controls whether or not the Create Site menu item is displayed)
  • "showSiteFinder" (controls whether or not the Site Finder menu item is displayed)
  • "showUsefulGroup" (controls whether or not the entire "Useful" group is displayed - will override "showCreateSite", "showSiteFinder" and "showFavourites")
  • "showRecentSites" (controls whether or not the "Recent Sites" group is displayed)
  • "showFavourites" (controls whether or not the "Favourites" and favourite controls, e.g. add/remove, are displayed)
