The new Sitecore SPEAK dialogs introduced with Sitecore 7.x are known to cause difficulties for some. Some of the issues are technical or configuration related, others are related to the fact that many users don’t like their cheese to be moved.
Sitecore SPEAK adds these dialogs by overriding the existing Sitecore dialogs. To revert them, simply disable the override.
Go to the \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.Speak.config file and you can see the overrides at the top of the file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/"> <sitecore> <overrideXmlControls> <override xmlControl="Sitecore.Shell.Applications.Media.MediaBrowser" with="/sitecore/client/applications/Dialogs/SelectMediaDialog" /> </overrideXmlControls> <overrideDialogs> <override dialogUrl="/sitecore/shell/Applications/Dialogs/Internal%20link.aspx" with="/sitecore/client/applications/dialogs/InsertLinkViaTreeDialog" /> <override dialogUrl="/sitecore/shell/Applications/Dialogs/Mail%20link.aspx" with="/sitecore/client/applications/dialogs/InsertEmailDialog" /> <override dialogUrl="/sitecore/shell/Applications/Dialogs/Anchor%20link.aspx" with="/sitecore/client/applications/dialogs/InsertAnchorDialog" /> <override dialogUrl="/sitecore/shell/Applications/Item%20browser.aspx" with="/sitecore/client/applications/dialogs/InsertSitecoreItemViaTreeDialog" /> </overrideDialogs> ... ... </sitecore> </configuration>
Comment out the SPEAK dialogs you wish to disable, or comment out all of them if you wish to have all SPEAK dialogs to disappear.
