[feature request] remove SEO filters on main edit Post/Page screen #43

I want to remove to two select boxes that appear in every admin page listing post, pages or cpts:

  • SEO Scores filter dropdown
  • Readability Scores filter dropdown

Here is an image:

I was unable to un-hook, so I hide them. In my functions.php I have:

function my_hide_wpseo() {
    if ( is_admin() ) {
	print '<style>select#wpseo-filter, select#wpseo-readability-filter {display:none;}</style>';
add_action( 'restrict_manage_posts', 'my_hide_wpseo', 15 );

I hope this explains.

It already is possible within the General settings of Yoast SEO under the Features tab to turn the SEO Scores and/or Readbility Scores on or off, but that is global.

@caban13 wants to be able to have them turned on, but remove/hide them from the Edit Post/Page/CPT screens.

Anyone who also would like this, please vote it up. 10 votes or more we will consider it, 25 votes or more we will implement it.
