How to suppress SharePoint 2010 ribbon based on permissions
Have you ever noticed how in SharePoint 2010 Owners see the ribbon and can click Site Actions/Browse/Page, and Readers see the ribbon too but there is no any actions or tabs to click and they see dark blue band. In some cases there is nothing else going on up there for Readers. It is wasted real estate!
The Reader can use all the extra space for some website goodness!
This is easy to solve.
- Open the master page, find the div tag:<divid="s4-ribbonrow"- Put the following around it: <Sharepoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControlrunat="server"Permissions="ManageWeb"><divid="s4-ribbonrow" …</div></SharePoint:SPSecurityTrimmedControl>
