Hides metabox controls on the write/edit post & page admin screens for each user role. Also controls autosave, trash time and saved revisions.
In plugin version 2.9 a new control was created for setting the number of posts to keep in the trash - if you don't wish to use the trash functionality set this to 0 days.
Thanks for reporting - this is due to you having an older version of PHP on your server compared to what I'm testing on. I've made the code backwards compatible in version 2.81, so update and you should be fine!
Update to plugin version 2.7 or above, it has been updated to support new revisions controls.
The last version of this plugin to support WordPress 3.5x is v2.6, you should think about upgrading when you can - we are ready for you!
Your WordPress theme has to specifically support these features, if they are not enabled the controls won't enable the function. Ask your theme designer to update their theme if required!
Please use version 2.4 and above to fix this glitch.
2.3 (and above) fixes this glitch in WordPress 3.0 - with the introduction of custom post types things have changed a bit and I have now amended the plugin to accommodate this.
2.22 was the last version with WordPRess 2.9 compatibility. If you are using an earlier version of WordPress you really should upgrade - you get lots of cool new stuff and a faster, smarter WordPress!
2.2 (and above) fixes this glitch - thanks for the feedback!
2.0 and above is a complete re-write using a new method to remove the controls. Because of this, these issues are now completely resolved.
YES! Administrators, editors, authors and contributors can all have different settings.
NO! All of the core controls are removed in a completely different way now - not just hidden with CSS. They can't be revealed by hacking the browser rendered CSS, as they are not even rendered to the page anywhere!
The global options you set in the main WordPress options are used.
In v2.1 and above just deactivate the plugin and then delete it using the WordPress plugin page option (not just of your server via FTP!). When the plugin is deleted through WordPress, it also deletes the option(s) from the database options table that are created.
In v2.1 the options are set to be persistent - so if you deactivate the plugin and re-enable it, the settings will remain saved. Delete the plugin to delete the saved database options.
These are now restored in v2.1 and above. Click on the core functions link at the top of the screen, or Post Control Core in the sidebar under Settings to turn off autosaves, revisions and the Flash uploader.
Make sure you are using the latest version! V2.0+ is designed for WordPress 2.9 and above. If you are using a version older than that, you will have to use an older version of the plugin - and really should think about upgrading, this plugin is ready for you!
Ensure you have the plugin installed in the correct directory - you should have a directory called wp-cms-post-control in your plugins directory. Inside there should be another directory called inc.
I've got quite a few things I'd like to do with this plugin, but don't hold your breath waiting for them to happen... you may burst!
What began as inherited code has now been completely re-written in v2.0 to use new methods and best practices in WordPress plugin development by Jonny. The first codebase began as a plugin build by Brady J. Frey and I maintained this version for some time, but version 2 is a complete re-write from the ground up.
