I would like to remove and dumb down the cms for my needs and employees. I have little php knowlege but silverstripe is proving very easy for a novice to manage.
I am lost when it comes to customizing the admin section. I want to remove the top set of tabs. Please see attached file. I did read you can do it be setting security permissions, but I would like to remove them from the coding
I would appreciate it if someone could give me advice or tell me where the file is so I can make the changes
No you just put the code into the getCMSFields() function in Page.php and you should be good to go. You only need to rebuild the database (dev/build) when you change the structure of the database (e.g. change the $db array) and you only need to edit your templates when you want to change something on the front end.
