I am setting up a WordPress site for a group of novice users. I would like to make the author interface as simple as possible for them and remove unessential elements, such as Except, Trackbacks, Custom Fields, and Discussion. However, I would like the admin user to still be able to set defaults, e.g. for the Discussion options.
Does anyone know of a plugin that will accomplish this? Barring that, what would be a good way to accomplish this?
