#48325 assigned enhancement

Additional filter in media-template.php. Let developers to hide attachment page link.

currently there is no easy way to hide "View attachment page" link from "media-modal" window. I think it would be great to add simple filter to disable this link and also add some HTML markups for "|" separators which can help users to use CSS selectors and style them. For example:

media-template.php, lines from 428

<div class="actions">
if ( ! apply_filters( 'disable_attachment_page_link', '' ) ) : ?>
<a class="view-attachment" href="{{ data.link }}"><?php _e( 'View attachment page' ); ?></a>
<span class="links-separator">|</span>
<?php endif; ?>

I think this feature is especially important when we don't want allow our users to access this type of pages.

Hi @limera1n,

Thanks for this report. I agree that this is not an easy thing to override at the moment. You would either need to override the whole template, or hide that link with CSS—neither a good option.

Allowing that template code to be filtered is one option for how to solve this, but I wonder if a better approach would be to update that template to check for the existence of a data.link value before printing the link so that this won't show up if the link value isn't available for any reason?
