Support » Themes and Templates » Remove Category option from authoring posts

  • I would like the “Categories” option to not appear for Authors; in other words I would like them to have only the option of using tags when composing and publishing their posts.

    Any help on how to do this would be appreciated.

  • Here is the solution that i have found . Go to your file manager and find meta-boxes.php in the location /wp-admin/includes/ inside your wordpress installed directory.You will find these functions function post_format_meta_box( $post, $box ) and function post_categories_meta_box( $post, $box ) . You can either comment these functions or you can override these functions. However, it may affect future WordPress Upgrades.
