WP-CMS Post Control

Hides metabox controls on the write/edit post & page admin screens for each user role. Also controls autosave, trash time and saved revisions.

Post Control from WordPress CMS Modifications gives you complete control over your write options for every user level/role. It not only allows you to hide unwanted items like custom fields, trackbacks, revisions etc. but also gives you a whole lot more control over how WordPress deals with creating content.

Simplify and customise the write post and page areas of WordPress to show just the controls you need. Great for de-cluttering - do you really need those pingback and trackback options, not using tags, want only administrators to be able to set categories... now you can decide what each individual level of user can see and use!

It also features other advanced configuration options like disable autosaves, limit the number of revisions saved and how many days before trash is auto-emptied by WordPress.

NEW - Control number of days before trash is emptied

NEW - Remove word count on a per user basis (feature request)

NEW - Control exactly how many revisions are saved when you are amending your content or even turn off revisions. This stops your database getting clogged up and is great when you are designing a site!

  • Post Author (if multiple)
