Major flaw in the new SharePoint?

  Asked By: Ruchir    Date: Feb 21    Category: MOSS    Views: 11196

I posted this the other day and haven't gotten a response (maybe
because no one knows?), so I thought I'd post again.

I am really disturbed by this: the new "people and groups" list
seems very cool, BUT it always leads you to a link in the Quick
Launch to "All People". That allows any site user to see all users
in the site collection. I doubt I'm the only person who uses one
site collection for more than one group.

I've monkeyed with permissions (allowing only members of a site to
see members of that site, changing the group quick launch, etc.),
but "All People" is like a bad virus...always there. I finally
removed "people and groups" from the quick launch (unfortunately
removing this nice view for site users, and the ability to send
emails to the group, etc.), but even if you click on a users name
from anywhere on the site, it takes you to their profile, and you
can easily use the breadcrumbs to click back to "people and groups".

GRRR!! When I googled this, I saw at least one other guy has raised
this concern on an MSDN forum and somewhere else, but I saw no
replies to him either.

Nope- you're the first to reply. :) Do you know if there's a way to
change this, and/or if Microsoft plans on changing  it in a hotfix or
service pack?

I can think of a few ways off of the top of my head without actually
logging into my moss installation. Check to see if this All People
link has an ID tag. If the tag has ID either in a DiV the A tag or
whatever you could hide it with some CSS. Simply throw this in

You could throw it in the global CSS file and it will make the change
permanent. However, I caution you on this as there are probably
better ways to do it as I am not fully up to speed in redesign of MOSS
stuff yet. Second, add the style blob to whatever master page the
page your are getting the link  on. Finally, you might be able to
deploy a feature to remove this.
