Disable drag/drop on Flexible Content for non admin users

  • Hi,

    I’ve used a Flexible Content field to create a page builder for my client sites. It works perfectly and enables me to build out sites super quick – BUT – I feel like it gives end users too much control.

    It’s not always possible to give full training on the WordPress back-end so is there a way I can disable Drag & Drop on flexible content fields for NON Admin users? So I only I, as the admin, can reorder fields at will.

    Thanks in advance.

  • I have same question

  • The solution I used for anyone else with the same question.

    I enqueued an admin-acf.css file into my theme and used the following CSS to target the flexible content fields:

    .acf-fc-layout-handle {
        pointer-events: none;
    .acf-flexible-content > .acf-actions > [data-name="add-layout"],
    .acf-hndle-cog {
        display: none!important;
  • Thank you for your response
    I found another way (better for me, maybe will be better for you too)

    jQuery(document).ready(function() { jQuery("table.acf-table td.order").removeClass("order"); });

    And here is the doc about JS include –
