File Manager Hide Directories

File Manager Hide Directories

I would like to hide the directories when opening the file manager. I have unchecked the Show Directories box, but still they show. In the code, it reads... show_sidebar:false, ... but still the directories show.

When I have 'show_sidebar:true' the url reads and the directories show. When I have 'show_sidebar:false' the url reads and the directories still show.

However, when I take the first url and change the showsidebar=true to showsidebar=false and put it in the browser as such:, the directories do NOT show. So, it seems that either the javascript or php is stripping the showsidebar=false out of the code somewhere.


It was as simple as putting the ' around false, so it should read: showsidebar='false' instead of showsidebar=false . It works now.
