#58925 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Settings API: Add way to remove fields added via add_settings_field().

It doesn't appear that the Settings API offers a built-in way to remove fields added using add_settings_field(). It is possible to deregister settings using unregister_setting(), but the field markup will still be written.

Hi @dcavins, it looks like we're already tracking this in #15865, which includes a patch which adds this function and a couple of others too.

Let's continue the discussion there and see if we can land these functions in the near future.

Thanks! I'm shocked that Trac search failed me! :)

I agree though that anything called an API should have add_ edit_ and remove_ functions built in. Thanks again!
