Im trying to customize the wordpress media manager "add media" window to get it as simple as possible to use. So i want to disable/ hide the following fields/ functions because i dont need some or others i handle with css.

  1. I need to hide the tabs "create gallery", "set featured image" and import from url.
  2. I want to hide/ disable the fields "url", "align", "link to" and "size" when i select an image.

Any idea how i can do that with a function, css or a plugin? I found some code-snippets to hide some tabs in functions.php but they didnt work in my wordpress v 4.3.1.

Thanks four your help and best regards. Pascal

  • These filters are not working. Maybe they are to old.

  • I solved the problem with a specific backend css with which i hide all the fields i dont want to show. Probably thats actually the best solution. If someone has an idea to solve this with filters i would be intrested in.
