    You can create a custom permission level based off the Read permission and just deselect "View Versions."  That should work fine.

    1. Site Actions > Site Settings > Advanced Permissions
    2. Settings > Permission Levels > Edit Permissions
    3. Click on the Read permission level
    4. Scroll to the bottom and click Copy (do NOT change the default Read permission!)
    5. Name this copy "Read without Versions" or something like that.
    6. De-select the View Versions checkbox.
    7. Click Ok.
    8. Apply this permission level to your users or group of users.

  • This worked for me. It hides the version history. Thanks Clayton.

    How about if I want to display my custom page when the user clicks the version history menu. Would that be possible?

  • Maybe, but I don't know how unless put your custom page in the hidden Forms folder of your list and point each View URL to that page, but then no one can use the views.
