Make workspace buttons unclickable

Is it possible to disable the ability to click the workspace buttons in the bar but still have the icons there? I'd like it so you can only change to another workspace by using a keybinding.

This is not configurable, at least with `i3bar`. And I doubt that it ever will be: why add complexity to the code when all you have to do is to not use this feature, if you do not want to use it.

No, and it’s unlikely we’ll ever have this level of customization in i3bar. It’s supposed to be simple :).
