Remove image upload option for users? (2 posts)

    Is it possible to entirely remove the image uploading option for blog users? I am counting on having a lot of users, so I want to encourage them to use services like flickr.

    I was poking around in the post.php backend file for another reason, but I think the solution is to find this string in the post.php file (in the /admin folder):

    <iframe id="uploading"

    The image uploader is contained within an iframe. I bet if you just delete everything up to and including the </frame>, that will solve your problem. (Of course, BACKUP the file before performing surgery on it, however minor a tweak this may appear to be!)
