I had to hide Some menus in Admin side.

I refered MANY questions here on Stackoverflow , on other sites . BUT they simply say ,

Create a file called adminhtml.xml under /etc folder of your module:

BUT no one told what should be in module , will it have class , what should be in it????

Lets take it easy :

I hav all folders like ,controller,Model .. In folder local\MyCompanyName\WelcomeInsync NOW WHAT ?

I simply created adminhtml.xml in etc folder but NOTHING happened

I used following

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <xmlconnect> <!-- <xmlconnect> to match adminhtml.xml file of Mage_XmlConnect module -->
                <module>HideMe</module> <!-- Fake dependance to hide tab -->

What should be done ? I have folders only blank ,just etc has files config.xml + adminhtml.xml.

I tried cache clearing Nothing Worked . Is there any magento EXPERT to answer ? THANKS!


Nice and simple this one you create a module with a config.xml file and this config.xml can simply have the following.


This will just disable the complete menu "Mobile"....I have no idea why Mobile has the node xmlconnect, but still this will work.
