Hide Multiple Upload link in SharePoint 2010

I had a request to hide the multiple file upload links in SharePoint 2010. After an hour or two of searching for a configuration setting, I got tired and did a simple CSS hack. Granted this doesn’t disable the functionality it only hides links. So users could still work around this if they know the path.

Because SharePoint ignores common web standards and uses Ids with periods I had to escape the Id. CSS will treat the periods as a class declaration if they are not escaped.

To use this simply add the code snippet to your main CSS file or your master page in SharePoint. If this code snippet doesn’t work for you verify that the Id’s are the same in your SharePoint installation.

{
         display: none;	
}

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
