Enabling or disabling Create menu

The Create menu allows users to create a variety of content, such as discussions and documents, in the community. You can enable or disable this feature.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Home Page > Enable the main navigation create menu

By default, to encourage users to contribute to the community the Create menu is enabled, and users see a pencil icon in the upper right corner of the user interface.

You can change how the menu is displayed, as described in Theming community. Or you can disable the Create menu for the community by using the Admin Console.

With the Create menu off, you need to create places through a different process. For more information, see Group creation options in the User Guide and Space creation options.
Tip: Status Update creation can also be enabled or disabled and is configured separately. For more information, see Configuring user update settings.
