This is annoying. I've created a site, enabled the Publishing features, and added a couple people to the "Members" group that has Ready Only access.
When these users log in, they still see the "Site Actions" menu! When they click on the "Site Actions" menu, the only option given is "View Site Content"
We are trying to reduce as much "SharePoint Noise" as possible, so we would only like the "Site Actions" menu to show for Admins.
The only way I've been able to hide this is to make the SiteActions control security trimmed, like so:
<Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl runat="server" PermissionsString="ManageWeb"> <SharePoint:SiteActions id="SiteActionsMenuMain" runat="server"> ... </SharePoint:SiteActions> </Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl>
This seems a little dirty.
There has to be a better way to do this without having to edit the Master Page.
