Hiding some functionalities
13 August 2009, 0:18
I'm quite new to Mahara and I was wondering if it was possible to hide some functionalities inside MAHARA like the "blogs tab", "profile page", "goals" for example.
If it is possible, how do I do that?

I am testing the new Plugin Administration fuctionalitiy right now, It looks quite smart, although, I guess that in the end, it will be transfering power from users to administator, instead of the user-centred platform that we got at the beginning (dificult to please everybody :-) ).
Just one quick remark:
I can see how to disable/enable the following:
but not blog tags, unless you don't display them on screen by altering the code.
I imagine that it is because it is an alpha version not finished yet.

The disabling functionality is only for plugins, so there you can disable those blocktypes. And you can disable the blog plugin itself (under Artefact plugins). But an actual "sub feature" of them, like blog tagging, can't be disabled from that screen, and yes you'd have to remove it from the code for now.
If you want the ability to enable/disable tagging, please file a feature request, and we'll see what we can do
