To remove the Button "Discover Spring Release" on Home Page

Hi,

 

On the Home page, to the top right corner there is a button link "Discover Spring 12" found. One of my client's requirement is to remove that button on the home page. We tried to remove that button but no solution could be found. Can we remove it? Please let us know the solution if any .

 

Thanks,

Pavan

Hi,

 

Follow the below steps to remove the Spring '12 for Developers button from home tab.

  1. First of all create a home component with html area and check the checkbox of show html.
  2. After that write the following code in empty area

 

<script type="text/javascript">

var x=document.getElementsByTagName("input");

for(var i=0;i<x.length;i++)

{   

                if(x[i].type=="button")   

                {       

                                if(x[i].name=="whats_new")       

                                {           

                                                x[i].style.display='none';       

                                }   

                }

}

</script>

 3. Save the component.

Hi Bala,

 

Thanks for the quick response.

 

As you said to use the java script, but i could not access that part of the div tag for the "button - Discover Spring 12" through java script using the custom link in the home page.

 

Please let me know the workaround or how to go about t using the java script.

Javascript

Create Html component ... narrow component

Add this in required home page layouts

 

 

<div id="demoContainer"><script language="JavaScript">try{var pa=document.getElementById("demoContainer").parentNode.parentNode; pa.style.display = "none";}catch(err){alert('There was an error on this webpage='+err.description);}</script><script language="JavaScript">function CustomApproval(){var s=document.getElementsByTagName('input');for(var i=0; i< s.length ; i++){if(s[i].className.indexOf('btnImportant') != -1){s[i].style.display='none';}}alert(divs.length);}var oldonload = window.onload; if (typeof window.onload != 'function'){window.onload = oldonload;} else { window.onload = function() {if (oldonload) {oldonload();}CustomApproval();}} </script></div>

 

******** Advantage of this javascript &colon; It will hide that Left hand side component present from screen as well

Thanks it solved the question.

 

One more quest, since i need to create this home custom component in home page, the name of the custom component would appear in the home page layout. Can we hide this name from the home page layout?

If you use script given by me,

It will hide that component from left hand side

Now that with Summer 14, we cannot add a home page using HTML Area, I am trying to do the same with VF page and adding that page to the Homepage. The above code does not work if I put in a VF page. Any idea how to get access to the Discover link from within the VF page? Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

With the Spring 16 release "End of Sidebar workarounds via Messages & Alerts and Custom Links finally in Winter or Spring '16?" ,
we are facing the issue on home page where we were hiding certain buttons, Discover Spring 16 button, chatter feed sections and other customizations.

In our project, we need to hide certain buttons, chatter feeds on home page and modify certain URLs on the standard page layouts. Please let me know for any workaround for this Spring 16 impacts.

Thanks,
Pavan
