Re: Moodle 2.3 :: how to disable the dragging and dropping of files

+1 for having a global option to disable drag and drop file uploads.  We have a client who wants all of their teachers to upload content into an external repository, and then use the repository plugin to reference the files.  The drag and drop feature is a flashing advertisement to circumvent their proper repository workflow, so in this case it makes sense to remove the option so that users are not encouraged to do things the wrong way.

 

Cheers

Ash

Agreed with Ashley above.

We have no need for this and are trying to convince our users to put files into our external repository. Having the drag and drop here means that they are going to continue to do the wrong thing.

I think you should open a tracker issue/request for that (if none existing), and post link to it here.
