Plone: Hide the Login Button

Plone IconIf the content of your Plone site is not editable by the general public, there is no point in displaying the login link to non-authenticated users.


Remove Login Action

Plone: User Login Action
Plone: User Login Action

To remove the login button,

  • go to Site SetupZope Management Interface
  • navigate to portal_actions/user
  • edit the login action
  • untick the Visible? check box

While this will hide the login facility from the visiting public, the personal tools menu will still remain accessible for the logged-in user.

Those who need access to the site, can simply bookmark the site's /login[1] page.

Hide the Personal Bar

Plone: Manage Viewlets
Plone: Manage Viewlets
Alternatively, if you don't want to delve into the ZMI, you can hide the personal bar via the viewlet manager at /portal_actions/@@manage-viewlets.

However, this has the disadvantage that it will also affect authenticated users as links to Dashboard, Preferences and Site Setup will no longer be conveniently accessible from the personal tools drop-down menu.

  1. ^ Plone 3 and earlier versions use /login_form.
  2. This process has been tested with Plone 4.1
