Version: 1.9 Allow users with access to the administration section to hide inline documentation and help text, which generally target beginning users
Allow users with access to the administration section to hide inline documentation and help text, which generally target beginning users.
WordPress has long provided inline documentation throughout the administrative interface that provide explanations for various features and input fields. This includes an explanations of excerpts, trackbacks, custom fields, page parents, etc. These are great for newcomers to WordPress, but for those sufficient familiarity these bits of text are no longer necessary and merely provide visual noise. This plugin gets rid of those descriptive texts.
The plugin's behavior is made available as a per-user profile option. Each user who wishes to enable expert mode for themselves must do so individually by going into their profile, checking the field 'Expert mode', and then pressing the 'Update Profile' button.
Specifically, this plugin removes:
Themes - Custom Header
Add New Plugins
Tools - Export
Settings - General
Settings - Permalinks
NOTE: This plugin does NOT remove input field labels or section headers, nor anything containing actual data. In a few cases, descriptive text is left in tact when it of enough importance to warrant retention, or the markup structure does not facilitate easy removal.
