Removing Modules from the Menu PHP-Nuke

Modules make up a good deal of the functionality built into the PHP-Nuke content management system. The following article explains how to remove modules so that they are no longer part of the front end menu. Certain modules can be assigned for viewing, so that they may be visible to some while invisible to others. Administrators can also de-activate modules so that they are not available to anyone. The following article explains the various ways to deactivate or remove modules from the front end using the PHP-Nuke Administration back end interface.
