Filr 4.0 disable beta UI button, not the beta UI itself?

In Filr 4.0 I want to get rid of the blue "Beta UI" button, so that my users don't mess with it, but I still want to be able to access it myself. When I select "Disable Beta UI" in the admin console, it literally disables it and prevents me from logging in even if I know the URL (https://filr.domain.com/filr sound familiar?)

as per your query, the button ONLY CAN’T be disabled, it disables access to the new UI as well. It is a safety switch so as to prevent users access even if they guessed the URL correctly or bookmark the URL when it was active.

why have a button for it at all? this means I can't test it out without calling everyone's attention to it.

does anyone know where the graphic for the button is stored? I wonder what happens if I just delete the button graphic, or replace the graphic with something that will be invisible.

You could try this CSS snippet and put it in your ss_call_out_css_init.jsp. You will need to restart the filr service, though.


<style>
div.mastheadNew_Filr_UI_Panel {
display:none;
}
</style>


To show the button again, simply remove the CSS snippet and restart the service.

Hope that helps.

This worked great - now with the Beta UI enabled I can access it at https://filr.domain.com/filr, but the users don't know about it.

For those looking for the file, it's /opt/novell/filr/apache-tomcat/webapps/ssf/WEB-IF/jsp/custom_jsps/ss_call_out_css_init.jsp

<style>
div.mastheadNew_Filr_UI_Panel {
display:none;
}
</style>


Thanks!

Sorry, missed a character in the file path, and it won't let me edit any more...
