Admin menu should not show - security issue

Ray,
the admin/index.php file has a menu showing and the login area.
I really think this is a security issue, as the menu exposes file and path names prior to login.

Please tell me what file I can modify that refrences the navigation menu, I have been searching all morning.

Thanks

edit the webassist/plugins/admin_menu/menu.php.php file. add the following code just after the <body> tag:

php:
<?php if(WA_Auth_RulePasses("Administrator")) { ?>





and this code just before theb </body> tag:

php:
<?php ?>

Thanks

That did the trick. But I see there is already code that checks for super admin.
I assume there is no problem having multiple if statements.

no, no problem with multiple if statements.

the code to check for supper admin is there so that only the supper admin can modify the store theme.
