Removing single file upload menu from MOSS Toolbar

Hi All,

I am not too sure about the scenario that you may need. But just for a fun purpose i though if we have multiple file upload menu then what to do with single file upload menu, anyways you can upload the single file with multiple file upload menu.

I though let me hide that manu just for a fun purpose.

(1) Add content editor webpart on AllItems.aspx of your document library.
(3) Open Source editor
(4) Paste the following lines of code and see, your single upload will get disabled

<script type="text/javascript">
function GetElementByText(tagName, title)
var a = document.getElementsByTagName(tagName);

for (var i=0; i < a.length; i++)
if (a[i].text)
if (a[i].text === title)
return a[i];

return null;

if (window.onload)
var oLoad = window.onload;
window.onload = function bodyLoad()

var o = GetElementByText("ie:menuitem","Upload Document");
if (o)
o.disabled = true;

That's it. Your job is done.

Thanks for the wonderful idea shared at this link

Loved this. Thanks!

One comment. While this disabled the Upload option, it is still visible though grayed out. I'd love to know how to remove / hide the entire upload button on the web part toolbar.

Indeed, I also told my boss from the beginning, you can upload any number of files including a single file using the multiple upload, so why does the single upload even exist?

But I have a library with 12 different views.
I do not feel like adding this script in each of them.
Is there a way to disable the single upload option in all views without having to add the same script in each library view?

try to add script in master page

but that will disable from all the library.

This is wonderful. I made an anonymous access library for outside viewers and I did not want them to be able to upload any files into this particular library - I just want them to be able to access the New button.

Thank you a ton!
