IM8 Box Hide
[resolved] Ability to hide additional options? (7 posts)

    Hi there - great plugin.. I am wondering if it is possible to select specific options with in each box to hide - For example - on the edit page - is it possible to select which items I want to hide with in the publish box instead of only being able to hide the whole publish box? I want to just show the ability to make it a draft or a post but hide everything else like date etc

    Also it would be great if it could work with custom post types so that one post type hides some things and other post types you can hide other things... do you think these controls and options are things that could be created

    Thank you!

    Hi, thanks for ur feedback =)

    I dont think thats its possible to hide only spoecific elements of a single metabox, as theres no native function within wordpress to do this. The only way would be to remove the element with javascript, which is not very secure and i dont know if this will lead to other problems. However i will try it out and see if this feature is possible...

    The thing with custom post types should work, but i guess its not very useful? Normally it should be part of the custom post type coding to enable or disable the metaboxes. Thats why its called "custom", isnt it? ;-)

    Hello, great plugin!

    Though, when I go to "Add Page", or "Add Link" some of the meta boxes I´ve hidden show up.

    So then the user (Author type) gets access to Dashboard, Appearance, Tools and Settings. If the user goes back to Pages, the meta boxes are back to what I have specified in IM8 settings.

    I have the WordPress Mobile Pack plugin installed, and what shows up in the "hidden" meta boxes all have to do with this plugin.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Hans Magnus

    Hi Hans,

    sorry, but i dont know what u mean? IM8 Box Hide has nothing to do with the WordPress link function or any admin menus like dashboard, settings etc.?

    It just works for "add page" and "add post". Please let me know ur exact configuration and which metabox you have troubles to hide ... =)

    Sorry, I misunderstood something here! Thought the left column boxes were included too.

    But the "Featured Image" does not show up for boxes to hide?

    That explains it ... =)

    However, a new version of the plugin with the ability to securly hide admin-panels is currently in progress, and will hopefully be released soon ;-)

    Thanks for the hint with the "featured image". As this is a new function in wordpress its not yet in the current version of IM8 Box Hide. I will include it and release an update.
