Ive created a custom post type and I want to hide the main textarea content in the publish/edit page.

Is it possible ?

Thanks!

Yes, remove the editor support from your custom post type.

You can do it in two ways.

  1. While registering your custom post type:

Example:

$args = array(
    'public' => true,
    'publicly_queryable' => true,
    'show_ui' => true, 
    'show_in_menu' => true, 
    'capability_type' => 'post',
    'has_archive' => true, 
    'supports' => array('title','author','thumbnail','excerpt','comments')
); 
register_post_type('book',$args);

2.Using the remove_post_type support if the custom post type is not defined by your code (i.e some other plugin/theme has defined custom post type).

Example:

add_action('init', 'my_rem_editor_from_post_type');
function my_rem_editor_from_post_type() {
    remove_post_type_support( <POST TYPE>, 'editor' );
}

You can upload files using the media manager, or build your own custom meta box to handle the uploads. – Hameedullah Khan May 24 '11 at 9:52

When registering your custom post type don't specify support for editor.

 $args = array(
    'labels' => $labels,
    'public' => true,
    'publicly_queryable' => true,
    'show_ui' => true, 
    'show_in_menu' => true, 
    'query_var' => true,
    'rewrite' => true,
    'capability_type' => 'post',
    'has_archive' => true, 
    'hierarchical' => false,
    'menu_position' => null,
    // on the supports param here you see no 'editor'
    'supports' => array('title','author','thumbnail','excerpt','comments') 
  ); 
  register_post_type('book',$args);

More information See: Function Reference/register post type.

You can also set

'supports' => false

to avoid default (title and editor) behavior.

Note: this is for 3.5 or greater.

You can remove tittle or editor in admin of post module

function mvandemar_remove_post_type_support() {
    remove_post_type_support( 'post', 'title' );
    remove_post_type_support( 'post', 'editor' );
}
add_action( 'init', 'mvandemar_remove_post_type_support' );
