    Hi, I would like to know if I can hide the large text editor in add new post if I select a specific category.

    Say, I have a category Events. If I select it in the categories section, I would like to hide the text editor, so that I only see the title form.

    Thanks

    Howdy Windy,

    To do that, you'll need to create a custom post type for Events. When you create a custom post type, you get to specify what parts (editor, title, all that jazz...) the type supports and shows in edit.

    The raw deal:

    Probably more helpful:

    There are other Custom Post Type plugins, as well.

    Let me know if this is not clear.
    Take care,
    Paul
