    How would I go about replacing/overriding the ItemSelector WebEditor in Sitefinity 3.6 SP1?  I would like to remove the ablity of the user to select from the file system as also end user images should be in a library.

    Hello EuclidLibrary,

    In order to customize the item selector, you need to change the following template:
    ~/Sitefinity/Admin/ControlTemplates/Libraries/Dialogs/ItemSelector.ascx

    For example, if you do not wish to have the Files tab in the second dialog (the one that appears after clicking on the "Select from already uploaded images" link), you need to remove the following line of code in the template (highlighted):
    <telerik:RadTabStrip ID="tabStripItems" runat="server" MultiPageID="multiPageImages" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" Skin="SitefinityDialogs"
        <Tabs> 
            <telerik:RadTab Value="pagesTab1" PageViewID="pagesTab" runat="server" Text="Pages"></telerik:RadTab> 
            <telerik:RadTab Value="librariesTab" PageViewID="pageViewLibraries" runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:Libraries %>"></telerik:RadTab> 
            <telerik:RadTab Value="filesTab" PageViewID="pageViewFiles" runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:Files %>"></telerik:RadTab> 
        </Tabs> 
    </telerik:RadTabStrip> 

    In this way, the user will only be working with the libraries from the Images and Documents module.
