Restrict Asset Delete Overview
Want to prevent contributors from deleting a used asset? This plugin is for you!
Using Restrict Asset Delete
Once the plugin is activated, any attempt to delete an asset already linked to any entry by an unauthorized user will be refused.
Note: The plugin will not prevent linked assets within WYSIWYG editors fields from being deleted.
The restriction can be set by using the relevant permission on a group or user level.
You can determine if
Admin users can skip the restriction by going to Settings → Restrict Asset Delete.
You can also copy and modify the plugin
config.php file to
restrict-asset-delete.php to override that behavior.
Note: By default, users with
Adminpermission are not allowed to skip the restriction.
