Remove scripts from wp-admin/post.php ? (3 posts)

    There are many posts on how to include scripts on certain admin pages. But I would like to know how to REMOVE any one of the WP core scripts. Is this possible?

    I posted about a particular problem caused by the [audio] shortcode being converted to an actual player in the Vidual post editor on https://wordpress.org/support/topic/new-audio-player-in-visual-editor-forces-shortcode-to-new-paragraph
    as this has some nasty side-effects for us and I'd like to remove any script(s) responsible for this.

    Is there any way to dequeue WP core scripts on admin pages?

    Why would you want to do that? They're all needed by wp-admin.

    Hi Esmi, thanks for your response :)

    Why would you want to do that?

    Because I want to prevent the [audio] shortcode being replaced by an actual player in the Visual editor. The player always gets its own paragraph while the shortcode used to be able to live inline with normal text. I think this changed with WP 3.9 ?

    The problem is that we are running a website with over 1000 posts that have one or more audio shortcodes and all of them are used inline with text. The front end audio player has been adapted via CSS to only show a play/pause button that fits nicely inline.

    Now, after upgrading, each time a post is edited, the play button jumps to its own paragraph, breaking the original post layout. Making us very unhappy with this latest media editing feature :(
