Disable “Images & Links” in Joomla 3 editor

The article editor in Joomla! 3.x is a huge improvement over the layout that was used in old versions, thanks to the new Administrator Interface. For me, however, there’s still some room for improvement.

I never use the “Images & Links” option in Joomla 3.x as it’s far from intuitive, and not that many templates fully support the feature. What is the point of having a bunch of fields that you don’t use in your editor?

Fortunately, you can disable the “Images & Links” section from your editor, and doing it is fairly easy.


1. In the Menu, go to Content > Article Manager.

Click the "Options" button.
Click the “Options” button.

2. In the Content Manager, click “Options”

Click the "Editing Layout" tab, then set Administrator Link & Images to "No"
Click the “Editing Layout” tab, then set Administrator Link & Images to “No”

3. In the “Options” screen, click the “Editing Layout” tab (1)

4. Set “Administrator Images & Links” to “No” (2), and click “Save”.

The result is a cleaner Editor Layout, which should help you focus on what the Editor is made for – writing awesome content.
