[plugin] [ORPHAN] ied_hide_in_admin version 0.1.: Hide Fields in Admin

This plugin can be downloaded from here
===========================

Overview

The plugin gives you control over what you want certain user levels see in the Write, Organise tab and the “inner” part of the Image tab. It also gives you option to have “Textile Help”, “Advanced Options” and “Recent Articles” in the Write tab be opened by default. It creates control panel under Extentions tab where you can manage your preferences:


so you just un-tick those fields that are not used by your users. It happens with help of JavaScript, means the fields will disappear only visually.

Nice, I like the idea behind it.

I have a question, if categories and sections are hidden are there defaults?

Now if we can assign defaults per user, then we can share our site with other users ;)

Wow, what a reaction, I love you guys! :-)

Bert, as mentioned, the fields disappear only visually, thus whatever the defaults you set in your Textpattern, they will remain.

Inspired,

I’ve just donated so you should be half way there!!

Unfortunately, I’ve had a few clients that have been ‘confused’ by the extra fields and features in the write tab. This solution will remove the confusion. Perfect.
