#14212 closed enhancement (fixed)

Hide more meta boxes by default

The edit post screen can be confusing with all of the meta boxes. Let's hide some of them by default. I suggest hiding Excerpt, Trackbacks, and Custom Fields.

Let's hide some more. Maybe discussion, comments, author? Is it crazy to suggest revisions, too?

I was going to disagree with you, but then I thought about it and I think I agree. I think we should keep revisions though shown by default.

comment:7 @nacin5 years ago

I would tend to agree for revisions, but I think we can segregate by post type and surely hide them for pages.

Hide everything except taxonomy.
