Configure your tools (under My Settings)

"Configure your tools" under My Settings is both superfluous and functionless.

It serves no purpose. Users can do nothing by clicking the option, despite what the page says.

From where can I remove the option?


  • This is used by certain plugins. If you don't have any of those plugins installed, as you say, the link does nothing.

    The only way that I have found to remove it is by hacking the submenu structure:


    Specifically what I do is to write a plugin that sets:

    $CONFIG->submenu['a'] = array();

    when get_context() == 'settings'

    which wipes out the complete set of links and I then use the submenu API to add back the ones I want.

    Crude, but it works.

  • Thanks, Kevin. I will give it a try.

    Btw, I have a question.

    Suppose I change the original text (in Languages) with "All the available plugins are automatically configured for you". Will this be replaced with the approppriate text by plugins that need "Configure your tools"?
