Where in the admin files is the code that displays the Excerpt Field in Write Post? I want to delete it because I don’t want my writers to make their own excerpt. We’ll only use the automatic excerpt. I want to save space and remove this field in the Admin > Write Post. I’ve searched inside wp-admin/post.php with no luck. I went into wp-admin/wp-admin.css and put display:none; on the Excerpt field, which hides it except for the hyperlinked word “Excerpt” that links to the Codex/Help. Therefore, does anyone know what part of wp-admin has the layout for the Post form? If it is post.php, anyone know what lines I can remove to delete the Excerpt field?
This is WordPress 1.5.2 and the output generated in my source code that I want to get rid of is this:
<legend><a href="http://wordpress.org/docs/reference/post/#excerpt" title="Help with excerpts">Excerpt</a></legend>
<div><textarea rows="1" cols="40" name="excerpt" tabindex="4" id="excerpt"></textarea></div>
