Easy blogging not hiding meta boxes

Hi

I have selected the checkboxes for hide Excerpt and Discussion in the settings 'Hide these meta boxes on "Edit Post" pages'

In admin for adding a new listing with the directory plugin, these boxes are still showing.

Please could you tell me how to hide these boxes or failing this, any pointers for where to edit to remove the WP support links in these meta boxes. ie. the 'Learn more about manual excerpts' link and the 'trackbacks and pingbacks' link

Thanks in advance

    Hey Nick.

    You got the new computer yet? I bet the insurance is taking its time huh?

    Please could you tell me how to hide these boxes or failing this, any pointers for where to edit to remove the WP support links in these meta boxes. ie. the 'Learn more about manual excerpts' link and the 'trackbacks and pingbacks' link

    Those are in the core of WP.

    I hate em too!

    I believe they can still be changed with the screen options (the drop down tab), this is the note there in the Easy Blog admin:

    Warning: all other boxes will be shown or hidden according to their screen settings

    An easy way though, grab yourself a copy of our Text Change plugin:

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/site-wide-text-change

    Then enter this:

    Learn more about manual excerpts.

    But don't give anything to change it. (include that full stop to get rid of the link)

    That should do it!

    Take care.

    Hey again Nick!

    Excellent, glad it works

    Yeah, I doubt Apple will do that...lol. Don't they like to keep the major releases in separate months? (could be wrong, most likely am)

    Yeah still getting good sleep. The little one slept right through for the last few nights.

    Well right through to when the wife clocks on lol (we take shifts in to ensure we both get sleep)

    I see you are keeping the same hours as me. Hows that site coming along now?

    Take care.
