Support » Plugin: Page Links To » Remove Meta Box for Author user roles

  • I’m trying to remove the plugin metabox for author user roles from edit.php page… i can do it for all other metaboxes but page-links-to.

    this is the code

    if ( current_user_can('author') )
    	function my_remove_meta_boxes()
    		remove_meta_box('postexcerpt', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('trackbacksdiv', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('postcustom', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('revisionsdiv', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('commentstatusdiv', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('commentsdiv', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('slugdiv', 'post', 'normal');
    		remove_meta_box('tagsdiv-post_tag', 'post', 'side');
    		remove_meta_box('categorydiv', 'post', 'side');
    		remove_meta_box('postimagediv', 'post', 'side');
    		remove_meta_box('page-links-to', 'post', 'normal');
    	add_action( 'do_meta_boxes', 'my_remove_meta_boxes' );

    in plugin’s source code i found this:

    function do_meta_boxes( $page, $context ) {
    		// Plugins that use custom post types can use this filter to hide the PLT UI in their post type.
    		$plt_post_types = apply_filters( 'page-links-to-post-types', array_keys( get_post_types( array('show_ui' => true ) ) ) );
    		if ( in_array( $page, $plt_post_types ) && 'advanced' === $context )
    			add_meta_box( 'page-links-to', 'Page Links To', array( $this, 'meta_box' ), $page, 'advanced', 'low' );

    but i cannot anyway to detect a working hook to remove the metabox.

    thanks for help!

  • I don’t know if you’re still looking for an answer to this, but this is what worked for me:

    remove_meta_box( 'page-links-to', 'post', 'advanced' );

    The $context for Page Links To is ‘advanced’. If you have a custom post type replace “post” with the name of the post type.
