How to hide "Use as Front Page" option for pages or how to stop teachers changing home page

Hi all,

Is there a way to hide the option "Use as Front Page" to set a page as the front page/home page? I would like teachers to have the option to add the content, but not change the front/home page.

Hello @martin_kabat 

Thanks for posting this in the Canvas Community! 

This is an interesting question that I really dug into. I was able to look at the Canvas permissions page HERE. The permission for Pages - update actually Allows the user to view page history and set front page. Keeping that in mind, it also Allows user to edit course pages. If you were to disable this for the teacher, they would no longer be able to edit the pages in their courses from my understanding. 

I don't see that there is a way to separate the two permissions that this is responsible for. You "might" be able to do something with custom CSS for this to hide that option. 

Hopefully this helps!

@martin_kabat,

Are you looking to remove that "set as front page" option for all users (even admins) or just users with certain roles (like teachers, for example)?
