[Resolved] New wordpress media upload feature allows all users to see full media library?

This support ticket is created 3 years, 3 months ago. There's a good chance that you are reading advice that it now obsolete.

This is the technical support forum for Toolset - a suite of plugins for developing WordPress sites without writing PHP.

Everyone can read this forum, but only Toolset clients can post in it. Toolset support works 6 days per week, 19 hours per day.


I updated the the toolset forms plugin and it comes with the wordpress media upload feature. But it appears that all users can access the full wordpress media library from the front end form when uploading a picture. How do I turn off the media library tab and just allow uploads?

Or is it only possible to turn off the wp media uploader all together using the checkbox for "Use the WordPress Media Library manager for image, video, audio, or file fields"?
