Is there a way to hide or disable an entry field in the CMS so that the field still exists in the database but can not be edited by a user. The field will only ever be altered dynamically from a plugin?


You could inject some CSS to hide it specifically.

  • yeah I know we can use css just wondered if there was a better way to do it with the backend?

I wrote a plugin called Incognito Field, which is basically a plain ol' PlainText field that can be set to disabled, readonly or hidden. Perfect when you need to update a field via a plugin and never via the Control Panel.

  • Nice! Bookmarked for future use. This would have been perfect on a project we did awhile back. Aug 15 '16 at 16:17
