I know to hide the Portal Favourites iView on everypage, you can:
Content Admin > Portal Conten » Portal Users » Standard Portal Users » FrameworkPage (Edit Object) » InnerPage (Edit) » Portal Favorites (uncheck the visible checkbox)
It did works, the favourites iView is gone. However, the funny thing is after a stopsap JC00 and startsap JC00, the favourite iview reappears. I rechecked the Portal Favourites checkbox and went back to checked!! (seems that after a reboot the settings is gone). Anyone have any resolutions?
