Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Need Screen Options Bar At Top

  • When creating a new post, is there a way to bring back the screen options at the top? Currently, if I create a post in Gutenberg, I have to save as draft, then edit in classic editor to access the field I need from screen options.

  • Hi @techdex

    Which option are you specifically asking about?

    When I’m writing or editing a post in classic editor, at the top there are screen options where I can select the boxes I’d like to display/hide such as excerpts, trackbacks, comments, and so on. Layout options as well, additional settings.

    Some plugins have their box options in that drop down as well. Gutenberg does away with that. I really need that to be there still, please.

    Same here. Gutenberg is good and nice, but you can’t just go and remove functionality, guys.

    Woah were did the screen options go from post and page edit screens!?!!>!

    If I can’t hide extraneous meta from users, this tool which is supposed to make the editing experience easier has just made it WAY more cluttered and crazy.

    Going through and unhooking all the things is HEAPS more work, also screen options works so well to be able to turn things back on as required. To me its a core feature of WordPress Core… Please keep it!!!

    In the Gutenberg editor, are the options you’re looking for not found either at the bottom of the content or at the bottom of the settings panel (cog icon) under Document settings? In my tests, both classic editor panels and plugin panels (except for the custom fields panel) defaults to being show in Gutenberg in one of those places (and then you can rearrange them with drag and drop).

    Also noting that a modal equivalent of the screen options settings is being discussed in Github here.



    Screen option is available in the new update, it is in the option section, where you can hide the unwanted material.

    Hi there! Anyone know how to *set* options in the Gutenberg options modal by role / cap? For example, I want to be able to hide the sidebar panel for Page Attributes, so that users who do not have the appropriate cap / role, cannot change the parent of a page, or e.g. change the template.

    You could in “old” WP set the screen options upon admin page load!

    Thanks in advance
