Hide Site Action WSS 3.0 SharePoint

Tag: sharepoint Author: accpa743 Date: 2009-07-20

I want to give a member a privilege to create a sub site or workspace with same permission as that of parent site. I have changed the OOTB "Contribute" permission level i.e. I have given permission to Create a web site. After doing this a Site Action Menu appear and I don't want it to be displayed when member with "Contribute" permission level is logged in. Is is possible to Hide Site Action at all without using designer?

Why not just create a new permission set, lets call it "Site Creators", that has all the option checked that contribute has + create site. Then create a new SharePoint group, add your users and add the new permissions set to the group's permissions.


If I do this then it allows me to create a site with unique permission only under permissions section the radio button for "Use permission same as parent Site" disables I have no choice to select it but I want user to create a site with same permissions as parent site.
That's very odd behavior, just checked it and it worked fine for me...
I am using WSS 3.0 with SP2

Below are what I do usually. Hope it works for you too.
No.1 Open up the master page in SharePoint Designer.
No.2 Wrap the html of the Site Actions within a SPSecurityTrimmedControl.
No.3 Set the Permissions String as appropriate.
