Remove browse tab

  • Hi everybody. This is my very first post on WordPress. I was wondering how to remove the browse tab from the upload manager form. I just need the Upload tab and don’t want to give users the chance to browse files on the server.

    I’ve searched everywhere but found nothing

    Thank you so much.

    Dario

  • I just tested this out on my localhost, so I don’t know if there will be problems down the line…

    Open: upload.php

    Find:

    if ( $pid ) {
    	// 0 => tab display name, 1 => required cap, 2 => function that produces tab content, 3 => total number objects OR array(total, objects per page), 4 => add_query_args
    	$wp_upload_tabs['upload'] = array(__('Upload'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_upload', 0);
    	if ( $all_atts && $post_atts = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_type = 'attachment' AND post_parent = '$post_id'") )
    		$wp_upload_tabs['browse'] = array(__('Browse'), 'upload_files', "wp_upload_tab_browse", $action ? 0 : $post_atts);
    	if ( $post_atts < $all_atts )
    	$wp_upload_tabs['browse-all'] = array(__('Browse All'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_browse', $action ? 0 : $all_atts);
    } else
    	$wp_upload_tabs['browse-all'] = array(__('Browse All'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_browse', $action ? 0 : $all_atts);

    Change To:

    if ( $pid ) {
    	// 0 => tab display name, 1 => required cap, 2 => function that produces tab content, 3 => total number objects OR array(total, objects per page), 4 => add_query_args
    	$wp_upload_tabs['upload'] = array(__('Upload'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_upload', 0);
    	if ( $all_atts && $post_atts = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_type = 'attachment' AND post_parent = '$post_id'") )
    		$wp_upload_tabs['browse'] = array(__('Browse'), 'upload_files', "wp_upload_tab_browse", $action ? 0 : $post_atts);
    	if ( current_user_can('import')
    		if ( $post_atts < $all_atts )
    			$wp_upload_tabs['browse-all'] = array(__('Browse All'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_browse', $action ? 0 : $all_atts);
    } else
    	$wp_upload_tabs['browse-all'] = array(__('Browse All'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_browse', $action ? 0 : $all_atts);

    I added if ( current_user_can(‘import’) ) to make it an Administrator only thing.

    Ref: Capability vs. Role Table

    Longhair, thanks for the tip, but there is a mistake in your code. You left out the second right bracket after ‘import’. For anyone else, copy and paste this instead. It works great.

    if ( $pid ) {
    	// 0 => tab display name, 1 => required cap, 2 => function that produces tab content, 3 => total number objects OR array(total, objects per page), 4 => add_query_args
    	$wp_upload_tabs['upload'] = array(__('Upload'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_upload', 0);
    	if ( $all_atts && $post_atts = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_type = 'attachment' AND post_parent = '$post_id'") )
    		$wp_upload_tabs['browse'] = array(__('Browse'), 'upload_files', "wp_upload_tab_browse", $action ? 0 : $post_atts);
    	if ( current_user_can('import'))
    		if ( $post_atts < $all_atts )
    			$wp_upload_tabs['browse-all'] = array(__('Browse All'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_browse', $action ? 0 : $all_atts);
    } else
    	$wp_upload_tabs['browse-all'] = array(__('Browse All'), 'upload_files', 'wp_upload_tab_browse', $action ? 0 : $all_atts);
