How To Disable Drag And Drop With Elfinder

Drag and drop is cool, but for me i found that it was causing more trouble than good. So if you are like me and are sick of accidentally dropping a folder into another sub directory, then it’s best to just disable it completely. Unfortunately this cannot be done directly using the init settings (at least as far as i know it cant), but not to worry, it’s very easy to disable it anyway.

To disable drag and drop, you will need to open up “elfinder.js”. For me this file was minified which made it a little difficult to work with, but you don’t need to do much so don’t worry. Do a search of the file and look for the following. Make not that this is the minified code, so if it returns null, try mess around with it a bit and you will find it.

In my case i just┬ádeleted the droppable functionality. This meant the drag still worked, but it didn’t do anything. You can disable both if you like but for me droppable was enough as I got weird icon issues sometimes when draggable was disabled.

Search through the file and look for following code and just delete the contents of the droppable value.

draggable:"ui-draggable",droppable:""

 

To delete the draggable functionality you will also need to edit the elfinder.js file. Look for a line of code like the following

draggable:"ui-draggable"

All you need to do is remove the text from the variable.

draggable:""

Drag and drop is now disabled for elfinder.
