My bad, I forgot to mention it. Put it under lib/menus/header.php.

Edit: put it at the end of the code.

Hi MercerDesign,

I don't know if it will work, but possibly you could wrap Hans' whole code block in an if statement that references a 'Hide The Erase Button' checkbox in one of your admin single record sections, so that you can turn the erase button on and off.


<?php if ( $your_admin_sectionRecord['hide_the_erase_button'] == 1):?> (Hans' code) <?php endif ?>

or just add another criteria into the beginning of Han's if statement IE:

<?php if($your_admin_sectionRecord['hide_the_erase_button'] == 1 && isset($_GET['menu']) && $_GET['menu'] === "section_name"): ?>

Please post if this works and I'll add it to the CMSB Cookbook

That worked, thank you

Hi, I've done this by updating the theme css.

I would not recommend that. It will hide all the "Erase" buttons from other sections, which you might need.

Hi MercerDesign,

Can you try this plugin?

It should be able to help you.



erase-buttons-right.php 1K

Thank you, I've reverted the style sheet but where or how do I use this plugin?

By Djulia - January 7, 2021

You must place the file in the plugins folder, then activate the plugin in setup> plugins.


Thank you. That has worked perfectly!
