CP Menu Master

Take control of your control panel menus! CP Menu Master allows you to hide channels from the publish and edit menus for ALL users, and display control panel menus on mouse-over instead of click. Think of all those seconds you will save!

Please note: This extension does not enforce any kind of security to prevent users publishing to channels. It simply removes links from the publish menu, to reduce clutter. Smart users can still publish to those channels by accessing the correct URL.


  • ExpressionEngine 2.1.5+


  1. Copy the entire cp_menu_master folder to /system/expressionengine/third_party on your server.
  2. Enable the extension under Add-ons > Extensions in your ExpressionEngine control panel.


When upgrading from a pre-2.0 release, please make sure you replace the entire cp_menu_master directory, and not simply merge the contents. The old acc, mcp, and upd files are no longer required. Your pre-2.0 module settings will be migrated to the new version.


Configuration options for this extension can be found under Add-Ons > Extensions in your ExpressionEngine control panel. Settings apply to all users, even super admins.
