The answers to this question give excellent instructions for adding filters to the admin edit.php screen for custom post types. But they don't explain how to remove the existing filters on date and category. Does anyone know whether this is possible, and if so how to do it?

OK that's great, thanks. That's not a technique I'd come across before. I'll work my way through it! – lpryor Sep 6 '11 at 10:01
