Hi, Plone 3.3 user here, building a site for users with the Plone "member"
role only.

As a member clicks Preferences on the personal bar, the member sees the Site
Setup portlet on the left - though only the heading, not the content. When
clicking the heading the member expectedly gets the message "Insufficient

Now, I'd like to completely hide this portlet for everyone (except managers
like me), but I can't find the proper code nor the proper place/template to
do it. I have 'googled' for a while now. My attempts include adding a
condition to the page template "plone_control_panel" (but I can't get it
right), among other random actions based on hints from the Internet.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
