Hide / Remove Quick Launch, Main Menu, Ribbon Bar SharePoint 2010

SharePoint 2010 introduced some more context-aware UI treats.

In case you need to write a new ASPX which you want to display as popup, or you just need it stripped down with less bells and whistles, just add a query string value to the URL references.

Same default.master, just that SP 2010 allows you to hide left navigation (quick launch), main menu, social widgets, welcome menu and top bar just by adding the Querystring parameter ?IsDlg=1 to the URL. Of course if there is already a base ?parameter on the URL you need to minimize, just add &IsDlg=1 to the end of the URL instead.

i.e. http://intranet.contoso.com/_layouts/create.aspx?IsDlg=1

or

http://intranet.contoso.com/_layouts/create.aspx?SomeExistingParameter=foo&IsDlg=1

    Hi Keith
    Sorry for the late answer but I had some urgent problems to solve.
    It’s ok now the feature has been removed and there is no more message.
    thanks a lot for your help and time.

    Don’t worry, I often am unable to wrap my head around SharePoint too. ;)

    It really does sound like what you need a is Workflow. A workflow let’s you perform business logic like you described – check out the getting started guide at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/jj163917(v=office.15).aspx. SharePoint includes Workflow out of the box, all you need to do to get started is download a free copy of SharePoint Designer.
