By default the website login/logout button for the website is positioned in the main menu. Is it possible to remove this button from this menu and put it in a separate sitewide menu containing buttons like contact/disclaimer/ etc?

I am using the ssdropdown menu and the tutorial template

You could do this by putting the same Login/Logout links in your Navigation.ss

Txz for your repsons ampedup.

But that will not help getting rid of the log in / log out button on the main menu. I think I need something I can put in the _config.php. Just like you do when you want to remove a tab in the CMS
i.e. CMSMenu::remove_menu_item('SecurityAdmin');

But i am just a front end developer so I really do not know..

If you are talking about the bottom bar in this image:

Then this is removed by removing $SilverStripeNavigator from the Page.ss template.

This is described here:

I really mean the navigation for my main menu. Somehow in this menu there is a item to log in as a member of a certain Security group. It is fine there is a link on my site for user to log in. But I do not want it in my main menu.

For reference I added a screenshot after logging in with my default Admin account. As you can see there are 2 buttons on the right ofr the menu: "Admin" and "Log out". Before logging in only "Log in" is displayed.

There is probably something in your Navigation.ss or Page.ss (depending on where the main menu navigation code is) bringing up those items.

Have a look in there and see if it is there, or paste the code of you want us to have a look.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction Ampedup!

It was in the MenuSmooth.ss.
