Deactivating user from creating new pages is related to your permission setting that assigned to this user, so you have to deactivate "create new page" by assigning on of the following permission level :

  • Read. ( Can view pages and list items and download documents.)
  • Or Limited access.(Can view specific lists, document libraries, list items, folders, or documents when given permissions.)
  • Or View Only. (Can view pages, list items, and documents. Document types with server-side file handlers can be viewed in the browser but not downloaded.)
  • Or Restricted Read (Can view pages and documents, but cannot view historical versions or user permissions.)
  • Or custom permission level with disallowing create new page with uncheck

Add and Customize Pages - Add, change, or delete HTML pages or Web Part Pages, and edit the Web site using a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible editor.

To check the permissions levels , navigate yo http://yourwebroot/_layouts/15/role.aspx

  • Hello , Thanks for instant reply . Consider myself as super admin and i don't want any user to add a page through Site Actions->More Options->In All Items Page-> Page . Want to remove the "Page " functionality for most of users . Commented Aug 8, 2016 at 13:02

  • Dear @RohitKharade I think , you can't achieve something like this without using permission , but you can deploy event receiver to prevent creating new page based on your requirement . Commented Aug 8, 2016 at 13:42
  • I searched further and realized that it is a wiki page having "SPLISTTEMPLATETYPE" id 119(Wiki Page Library) . Can we hide this icon by using css and jvascript ? Commented Aug 9, 2016 at 5:51
