How to delete links from page in Service Desk 7.5 MP1 "Contact Support, Help, Make Home Page"?

I know the help and contact link can be removed through the portal master settings (Admin - Portal - Master Settings) below 'Process Manager Settings' and 'Customization' tabs respectively.

Not sure if the Make Home Page can be removed within the GUI.

I couldn't find a way in the GUI, so I thought I'd get creative and modify the CSS to simply not display the link in the footer. C:\Program Files\Symantec\Workflow\ProcessManager\App_Themes\Symantec\Layout.css is the file used ("#graybottomCenter a" is the actual id in use, line 151) but when I added a "display: none;" to that section, it didn't seem to have any effect, even though it really should according to Firefox. I even cycled the application pool for the process manager with no luck.

I think if you could get the change in CSS to take effect, this method would work to remove all 3 links. Obviously, it wouldn't be supported by Symantec and you would likely have to do it again after a patch or upgrade of SD (or workflow).

The actual file for the footer is in <PM install root>/Controls/Footer.ascx... you can modify this ascx file and add some HTML to get it to hide. Keep in mind that this is not supported, and upgrades will replace this.

The main differences are here (my changes are in bold):

&nbsp;<a id="lnkSupport" runat="server" target="_blank" style="display: none"><asp:Literal
                                    ID="litContactSupport" Text="Contact Support" runat="server" meta:resourcekey="litContactSupportResource1"
                                    /> </a>
                                &nbsp; <a id="lnkHelp" runat="server" target="_blank" style="display: none"><asp:Literal ID="litHelp"
                                    Text="Help" runat="server" meta:resourcekey="litHelpResource1" /></a>
                                <span id="spanHelp" runat="server" visible="false">|<a id="linkHelp" runat="server"
                                    target="_blank"><asp:Literal Text="Help" runat="server" ID="litHelpLnk"
                                    meta:resourcekey="litHelpLnkResource1"></asp:Literal></a></span><span id="spanSupportSeparator" runat="server" visible="false" style="display: none">&nbsp;&nbsp;|</span><span id="blah" style="display: none"><asp:LinkButton
                                        ID="lnkSetAsHome" runat="server" Text="Make Home Page" OnClick="SetHomeClick"
                                        CausesValidation="False" meta:resourcekey="lnkSetAsHomeResource1" /></span><span id="spanShowFeedBackSapperator" runat="server" visible="false">|</span>
