Removing Auto-Detected Components with Features Plumber


Features will auto-detect dependencies for you, which can be very handy, but at times it can also be very frustrating when you don't want them to. In this video we introduce the Features Plumber module and show you how to use it to finely control your dependencies.

We are sometimes asked how Features can be removed. Since a Feature is just a normal module, you can disable it on your module administration page, and even uninstall and completely remove it from your modules folder. That will completely remove the feature from your site.

Note: The Features plumber module is no longer necessary if you're using Features with Drupal 7. The functionality provided by this module has been included into newer versions of the Features module. So as long as your Features module is up-to-date you should be good to go. The concepts from this video do still apply.
