Sub-Accounts and JavaScript

A little while ago I asked how to add links to the global navigation bar in Canvas


Links new Canvas UI


This works brilliantly and thank you for all your help.  The code we are now using in our instance is:


function addMenuItem (linkText, linkhref) {

    'use strict';

    var iconHtml = '',


        linkId = linkText.split(' ').join('_');


    itemHtml = '<li class="ic-app-header__menu-list-item tempRemoveClass">' +

        '  <a id="global_nav_' + linkId + '" href="' + linkhref + '" class="ic-app-header__menu-list-link">' +

        '       <div class="menu-item__text">'  + linkText + '</div>' +

        '  </a>' +





addMenuItem('Induction', '');

addMenuItem('Student Central', '');

addMenuItem('PLP', '');


I now have a new question I would like to customise a sub-account so the links do not appear, we have got this functionality switched on in Canvas.  So as I understand it I will need to upload a javascript file for the sub account that removes the above links.


If anyone could help me to achieve this I would very grateful.


Thank you
