Hide meta boxes based on roles.

== Description ==

**Hide meta boxes based on roles.**

* Hide core meta boxes (e.g., _Page Attributes_ and _Custom Fields_)
* Hide plugin meta boxes (e.g., _All in One SEO Pack_ and _MapPress_)
* Hide theme meta boxes
* Hide custom post type meta boxes
* Support for additional user roles (works great with plugins such as _Capability Manager_, _Capability Manager Enhanced_ and _User Role Editor_)
* Multilanguage: currently English, German, Dutch and Italian (please help us with translations if you want to see additional languages)
* Ad-free (of course, donations are welcome)

If you would like to **contribute** to this plugin, see its <a href="" target="_blank">**GitHub repository**</a>.

== Installation ==

1. Upload the `im8-box-hide` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins` directory on your web server.
2. Activate the plugin through the _Plugins_ menu in WordPress.
3. Find _IM8 Box Hide_ in the _Users_ menu in WordPress.

== Screenshots ==

1. **IM8 Box Hide settings page** - Here you can individually hide meta boxes for each (custom) post type and user group.
2. **Add New Page page with hidden meta boxes** - Only the _Publish_ meta box is visible, all other meta boxes are hidden.
