SharePoint 2013 - Hide Site Contents

Laura 41 Reputation points

Hello everybody,

I would like to ask how can i hide the Site Contents for specific permission groups without removing the possibility for them to see pages, use forms and upload documents?

Is there a way?

Thank you,

    by hiding Site Contents you mean hiding the link itself (Site actions > Site content) or actual content in some lists and doclibs? In first case you may hide it via css: Hide "Site Contents" Link from SharePoint 2013 Quick Launch Navigation.
    In second case you need to break permissions inheritance (List settings > List permissions) and remove your specific group from there.

    Hi @Laura ,

    If you have enabled publishing feature, you can try to set audience targeting for the "Site Contents" navigation link. Please check the last part of this document.
