Removing the "Recently Modified" section from the left hand navigation in WikiPlus


How do I remove the "Recently Modified" section from the left hand navigation section in WikiPlus?


If you want to remove the recently modified section from the left hand navigation section, you can go to the rendering template “WikiPlusTemplates.ascx” on your server at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14 or 15\TEMPLATE\CONTROLTEMPLATES and remove the section by deleting the following:

<SharePoint:RenderingTemplate id="WikiPlusRecentChanges" runat="server">
      <KWizCom:RecentChangesMenu id="WikiPlusRecentChangesMenu" runat="server" TemplateName="WikiPlusRecentChangesMenuV4"/>

 After doing that, save the file and perform an IISRESET. The recently modified section should be gone afterwards.

Extra Notes

If after performing the above steps, you find that the recently modified section is still present, make sure that you do not have an old version (or a backup version) of that file saved in the same folder.  If you would like to keep a backup of the original WikiPlusTemplates.ascx file, store it in a separate folder from the one that is being used currently as it may interfere with the new WikiPlusTemplates.ascx file.
