Is it possible to disable a module that was installed via a feature?

For example, I'm using a theme that came with a feature that installed a lot of modules, I realized that I don't need a bunch of the modules, but I can't disable them in the module page (the 'enabled' checkbox can't be toggled anymore).

Is it possible to just remove the feature but keep each individual modules configuration?

  • It's a bit risky if you don't understand the dependency tree fully, but just try it on a local copy, and you'll find out. :)

As far as I know, you can’t.

But, if you are 100% sure that these modules are not used by any component of your system you can do it in a hacky way. Only if you patch the feature’s .info dependencies and then revert it.

If it’s not very important to disable these modules (let’s say conflict with something?) do not do that!
