Best way to hide 404 page from editors

Recommended Posts

Hello

I think my "editors" should not see the 404 page in the list (backend).

I guess this page should not be deleted for technical reasons. Is this right?

If so, what is the best way to hide it?

I have written a little module (code below) and this seems to  do what I want. But is it a good way? Is there anything I have overlooked?

Or is this overkill and there is a much simpler way?

Thank you.
 

<?php namespace ProcessWire;

class HideAdminPages extends WireData implements Module {

    public static function getModuleInfo() {

        return array(
            'title' => 'HideAdminPages',
            'author' => 'Theo',
            'version' => 1,
            'singular' => true,
            'autoload' => true
            );
    }

    public function init() {
        if (!$this->user->hasRole('editorrole')) return; //hide for editorrole only
        $this->addHookAfter('ProcessPageList::find', $this, 'pageListFind');
    }

    public function pageListFind(HookEvent $event){
        $pages = $event->return;
        if($this->config->ajax){
            foreach($pages as $p) {
                if($p->id == 27) $pages->remove($p); //27 is the 404 Page
            }
            $event->return = $pages;
        }
    }
}

Nope. You can delete it if you want. In that case, let PW know what to use for 404 config (see below)

Yes. Quite the overkill :).

just move page with ID 27 under /admin/ (i.e., re-parent it). Editors will not be able to see it. 

OR

Create a new 404 page under /admin/ (and delete page with ID 27 or reuse it for whatever). Editors will not be able to see it. Add this to /site/config.php

$config->http404PageID = 1234;// ID of your new hidden 404 page.

That's all there is to it.

.role-superuser

In his other post I also recommended this but .role-superuser seems to be added by AdminOnSteroids only...
