Simplify allows particular fields to be hidden from the user interface. This
helps to de-clutter forms and present a more user-friendly experience to content
editors.

Different types of fields can be hidden with Simplify. Currently supported field
types include:

  • Nodes
  • Users
  • Comments
  • Taxonomy
  • Blocks

Fields can be hidden globally or per field type.
Globally hidden fields are hidden from all forms of that field type (e.g. a
field can be hidden from all node forms (Pages, Articles, etc.)).
Fields can also be hidden more specifically based on their field type:

  • Node fields per content type
  • Comment fields per content type
  • Taxonomy fields per vocabulary

(e.g. a field can be hidden from the Article content type but still be visible
on the Page content type).
