Disable ShortPoint on a Page Using a URL Parameter (Office 365/SharePoint 2019)

If you are encountering behavior issues or other issues that can contribute with the performance or the look of your SharePoint page, and want to confirm if it is coming from ShortPoint, then you can refer to this article to help you with that. 

This article would simply provide instructions on how to disable ShortPoint using a URL parameter on your SharePoint Office 365 or SharePoint 2019 On-Premise environment, so you will only have a plain SharePoint page with SharePoint webpart. 

Let's get started.


Before we begin:

  • The solution described in this article will only disable ShortPoint on a given page temporarily. It will not remove anything from your page at all. As soon as you remove the query string, you will start seeing your page the way it was before.
  • This option is available for you if you have installed ShortPoint SPFx Version or higher. 
  • This option only works if you are using ShortPoint SPFx solution, meaning that your SharePoint environment is Office 365 or SharePoint 2019. If you are using SharePoint 2013/2016 On-Premise, then you may switch to Disable ShortPoint on a Page (SharePoint 2013/2016 On-Premise).

How to disable ShortPoint using URL parameter for a specific page

Here are some quick steps to disable ShortPoint on the page using URL parameter.

Step 1. Navigate to page where you want to disable ShortPoint

Navigate to the page where you would want to disable ShortPoint using URL parameter in your SharePoint environment.

Step 2. Append query string spdisable with value 1 (spdisable=1)

Append the query string URL with parameter name as spdisable and value as 1 to your page URL right after the page name. 

For example, if your page URL is something like:

you should put spdisable like this:

And if your page URL is like:

then you should put spdisable like this:


Note: You may experience an issue when adding the spdisable query in the URL where ShortPoint customizations will be hidden for a few seconds, then it will come back. We currently have an issue with this query on our beta version (8.0.xx.xx), which our team is currently fixing.

As a workaround, you may add this query below: 


The same steps would still apply when adding this query, and it should also work the same.
