# How to remove the RichText Meta Box

How can I remove the rich text box editor in WordPress? I have used the remove_meta_box function specifying the boxes ID, but it does not work like it does for other core meta boxes:

The code I tried:

function remove_rich_box()
{
remove_meta_box('postdivrich', 'client', 'normal');
}


Where the second paratmeter "client" is my custom post type.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to remove it like a metabox, since it isn't one.

However, there's a very easy way to get rid of it for a custom post type. If you don't define anything for the 'supports' argument in the registration function, your post type will default to

'supports' => array( 'title', 'editor' ),


'supports' => array( 'title' ),
