Toggle Meta Boxes


A Multisite Network plugin. Go to Network–>Settings to “Enable Administration Meta Boxes”. Meta boxes(post, page, link, menu, comment, and dashboard) are unchecked and disabled by default. Extra options to toggle the Quick Edit buttons, Media buttons, Screen Options and Help links. Toggle to Restrict Comment Editing to Editor+ roles. SuperAdmin comments can only be edited by a SuperAdmin. Extra options to toggle the Quick Edit buttons, Media buttons, Screen Options and Help links.

I use the plugin to simplify the various edit forms available to the entire network of sites.

Added a toggle so only users with at least an Editor role can edit others comments. I also wanted SuperAdmin comments to be editable only by SuperAdmin.
