I am working on an enterprise wiki library, but when the user navigates to "My submission" view, he sees the "new document or drag files here" link instead of "add new page". Shown below:

Is there a way to hide this link? I do not want users to add documents directly without being inside a wiki page.

Probably the most simple option would be just to hide List View Toolbar

  • Open the page in Edit Mode
  • Go to XLV web part properties and specify Toolbar Type: No Toolbar

That's it.

P.S. Of course, you could accomplish the same task using CSS or JavaScript , but what for..

Edit the page and add the following CSS inside the content editor webpart:

    display: none;
