I have website created in Drupal LMS "Openscholar". Its a academy site and there are various,they have there on vsite where they can add content as per there role.When user logged in ,there is a link to "Delete Vsite" available on his/her profile,

enter image description here

Therefore,my issue is that he can delete his account without concerning Admin.I tried to hide it using "Display:none" in CSS but it will hide Delete link for admin too. Thus, i want to know how to resolve such issue ?


You can solve it by using a condition in your code. If current user is admin then show that Delete Link else hide it.

global $user;
if(in_array('administrator', $user->roles){
  your code to show link

    if you are trying code then no need of adding "Display:none;". If you want add Display:none then give it as inline or as in your stylesheet. – Abin Dec 3 '15 at 8:29
 $global $user
    //Get admin_id from database and add condition
    if ($admin_id == $user->uid){
         add your code here 

Hope this idea of code is helpful for you

  • If we have more than 1 admin, $admin_id will become error or become more complicated. Use abin's answer – user49951 Dec 3 '15 at 11:01
