Changing the tabs displayed to client

    I'd like to modify the navigation tabs. Primarily I'd like to remove the "Help" tab, as I use a different help/support system, so the built-in one is redundant/confusing. I noticed another thread mentioned going to System->Edit->CP_Users (with a warning NOT to edit user there). However, when I *did* modify the user there to uncheck the help box, the help tab did not disappear, it hopped to position #2 in the tab row.

    Is there a clean way to modify the header tabs?

    I believe you can edit the config file. then re-login as a user.
    line 128: $conf['interface_modules_enabled'] = 'dashboard,mail,sites,dns,tools,help';

    it's been a long time since I've tried it though, may want to get confirmation from Till.

    yes, ok, thanks for that tip, but won't that get overwritten with the next ispConfig software upgrade?

    For this one, you should create a and put your setting there, otherwise it won't survive ISPConfig updates. Many/most settings in do survive, but that's one which does not (or at least it didn't a couple years ago when I set up our first panel).

    # cat /usr/local/ispconfig/interface/lib/ 
    // Local ispconfig config overrides
    $conf['timezone'] = 'America/Denver';
    // disabling help module
    $conf['modules_available'] = 'dashboard,admin,mail,sites,monitor,client,dns';
    $conf['interface_modules_enabled'] = 'dashboard,mail,sites,dns,tools';
