Support » Plugin: Adminimize » [Plugin: Adminimize] Hiding SEO settings for contributors

  • Resolved pl2



    I use adminimize (latest version) and it’s a great plugin. However, for when I add a post, I couldn’t find a place where I can hide the SEO by Yoast plugin settings when you are writing a new post. Also there is an excerpt part that I want to hide, that I can’t. When I go to the settings page on adminimize, I don’t see a tickbox for SEO by Yoast.

    I checked the SEO by Yoast’s plugin page as well, and didn’t seem to find a setting where I can make it show up for only admins.

    Am I missing something?

    Thank you.

  • Hey Bud,

    This step by step should help.

    1. Go to the Admnimize settings page in Settings -> Adminimize
    2. Scroll down to the “Write options – Post” pane. This is the 7th pane when I look at it

      Mini Menu -> About the Plugin -> Backend Options -> Global options -> Dashboard option -> Menu Options -> Write options – Post

    3. Then find the 23rd item down in the “Write options – Post” pane called Excerpt (#postexcerpt, #postexcerptdiv, th.column-postexcerpt, td.postexcerpt)

    Then tick the boxes.

    I want to do the same, i have tried the above and no joy still there for authors even though its deactivated

    you can hide the box in the yoast SEO setting page, but it will hid it for everyone! not just a roll.

    so i have found.

    Hey guys,

    could you clarify on this? I have the same problem. I would like to hide metaboxes for authors, so that it would be visible only to Administrator of the website.

    ^ I would also like to work out how to do this!

    Tried nicksopers’s suggestion but sadly it didn’t work.

    Anyone else?!

    If you will hide the completly Meta Box from Yoast SEO plugin, add the follow strings to Adminimize.
    1. Settings of Adminimize
    2. Part of “Write options – Post”
    3. Add follow values to the custom options
    left textarea: wpseo yoast meta box
    right textarea: #wpseo_meta
    4. update options
    5. also got to “Write options – Post”
    6. Active checkbox on the role, there you will hide this meta box
    7. Update options


    It is also possible, that you hide parts of this meta box, find the class or id via Firebug or Webinspector in Chrome. Add this selector, like in css, to the custom options and save.

    Success! Thank you so much Frank.

    Hi there! I tried to do the same with All in One SEO Pack but I couldn’t find how to hide the meta box 🙁

    Any help is welcome, thanks! 🙂
