Hi,
Is it possible to disable the "Import content from template" button in the template style editor in Joomla! Admin?
It would be a user-security option to avoid overwriting the whole content of the page!!!
If there any file option or set to disable it, it would be very useful!!!
Thanks in advance!

Hi Tom,
Thank you for your help. But I didn't find any 'editor.zip' file in this folder. I found 3: 'exportimport.zip' /
'content.zip' / 'button.zip' If I delete anyone, it causes that in the JAdmin template editor disables the "Install plugins" button only. The "Import..." button is still active.
Any idea? Thank you!

Sorry my English is not very good ..
If there is a way, very simple, but every time you edit or save your template you should adjust it.
enter the "templateDetails.xml" file of your template, you can do it from the template editor in joomla.
and comment or delete the following line

field name = "content" type = "import" label = "TPL_IMPORTCONTENT" description = "TPL_IMPORTCONTENT_DESCRIPTION" text = "TPL_IMPORTCONTENT_TEXT" />

With that, it simply leaves the joomla admin.
This way you can hide or delete the other buttons.
To also I would like that this type of buttons did not appear or at least there was a selection mode to decide if you put them or not ..
I use this trick to prevent my clients from manipulating the templates.
I hope it helps.

a hug.

Hello again,
I think I did not really understand what Andreas meant. For safety reasons, my clients always get the template from me without the template-editor, to avoid that the customer changes something unintentionally.

If then the template is installed, the content.zip exists in the directory mentioned by me. If the template editor is present there is no content.zip.

If your template is finished you should export it without editor and install it to Joomla. Then you can delete the content.zip to make sure that no content can be importet from the template.

Thanks for help! I will try to comment this lines to prevent pressing this line. I only make chenges on my template, but it is more safe to me if I can not be able to press this button.
Thanks
