Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

“I want to stop my users from removing or replacing their photos once they have been placed in eGuide – in other words, I want to disable the “Modify Photo” link. Is this possible?”

And here’s the response from Andrey Karyagin …

Solution

If you want to COMPLETELY disable “Modify Photo” link, you should do the following:

1. Locate detail.xsl file. On the Win32 platform its path looks like:
C:\Program Files\Novell\Tomcat\webapps\eGuide\WEB-INF\templates\xsl\default\browser

2. Locate MODIFY PHOTO LINK string. In my case it was string number 189.

3. Comment out the following fragment of XSL code:

<!-- MODIFY PHOTO LINK
                     <xsl:if 
test="(detail/object/attribute[name='PHOTO']/@uihandler='SVBinaryPhotoUpload' 
and (detail/object/attribute[name='PHOTO']/edit='true' or 
detail/object/attribute[name='PHOTOAGREE']/edit='true'))">
                       <tr>
                         <td>
                           <img border="0" width="16" height="16" 
src="{ThemePath}PhotoIcon.gif"/>
                         </td>
                         <td>
                           <a 
href="eGuide?User.context={User.context}&stsh=PhotoDetail&User.dn={detail/object/dn}&Directory.uid={detail/object/uid}&Object.uid={detail/object/object.uid}&Action=DetailModify">
                             <xsl:value-of select="$ModifyPhotoLabel"/>
                           </a>
                         </td>
                       </tr>
                     </xsl:if>
-->

4. Restart both Apache and Tomcat to see the difference.
