Hi Everyone,

I'm new to this.I hope it works. I have been assigned to implement the SharePoint solution at my company. So far I have setup sharepoint as a farm across two servers,one application server and the other a web server. I have further configured most of the critical services and setup a web application and a site collection.

My question is this, how do I customize the site such that I remove or cover the very top most ribbon bar that has the sharepoint logo and the skydrive link?

I have a deadline to sort this issue out. As I'm not getting anywhere quickly I was hoping this medium will help solving my problem. Could anyone help?

Hi,

There so many ways to hide the top bar in SP 2013.

You can hie using CSS OR JQuery as per below sample.

1. Using CSS
- Add below CSS in you master page. (otherwise you can use Content Editor Web Part).

<style style="text/css">#suiteBarLeft .ms-table{display:none !important;}</style>

Open in new window


OR

2. Using Jquery
-  Add below JS code in you master page or Content Editor web part.

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
  $("#suiteBarLeft .ms-table").hide();
}); 
</script>

Open in new window


3 - Powershell: You can disable them at a Web application level. Use the following Powershell script to do this.
Powershell
 $wa = Get-SPWebApplication
 # This can be an empty string
 $wa.SuiteBarBrandingElementHtml = ” ”
#Save your change
 $wa.Update()


OUTPUT:

Let me know if any issue.

Hi Rainerj,

I'm using the sharepoint management shell and anytime I issue the second command I get an invalid operation prompt.

Hi Manojce,

I tried the Powershell function on the site you referred me to and was able to replace the SharePoint logo with something of my choice seamlessly. I also found some useful SharePoint tips. Thanks a lot for the help.

One last questions. One the same top bar that has the SharePoint logo(which thanks to you I have now removed), I have a feeds, Skye drive and sites menu. Could they be either removed or set to redirect to a location of choice?

Many thanks, once again.
