I was hoping if someone could help me better understand WordPress' post type support.
remove_post_type_support( 'post', 'author' );
Above in example doesn't seem to actually remove the support, just hide things like (post) meta boxes and (edit) columns more globally compared to this example:
remove_meta_box( 'authordiv', 'post', 'normal' ); // unset( $columns['author'] );
Guessing because of this some modifications will be made to
add_post_type_support sooner or later.
For future compatibility, which out of the above would you suggest for simply hiding things? (removing the
author post type support could really mess up your site if
remove_post_type_support would actually drop the support)
