we are looking at branding our SharePoint 2013 site.
What is the way to clear out all the stuff on top right corner like NewsFeed, skydrive, share, follow?
Is it possible via designer/VS? I have changed the top left text via powershell.. Can the top right things can be cleared off using delegate controls or CSS or commenting off something in master page?
Ideally I would prefer something like a VS feature (module).
Here is the answer with 3 possible solutions:- http://www.learningsharepoint.com/2012/08/09/sharepoint-2013-hide-newsfeed-skydrive-sites-deltasuitelinks/
Option 1 - Remove or Hide the Delegate Control from Master Page. Open your Master page in SharePoint 2013 Designer and look for “SuiteLinksDelegate” delegate control. In master page you would look for something like below -
<SharePoint:DelegateControl id=”ID_SuiteLinksDelegate” ControlId=”SuiteLinksDelegate” runat=”server” />
Simply Remove or Comment it out.
Option 3 - Creating a Visual Studio Solution for Overriding SuiteLinksDelegate Delegate Control.
