    Hey Tom!
    What do I need to add to functions.php to remove all 3 metaboxes from posts?

    Hi there,

    Give this a try:

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme','generate_remove_metaboxes' );
    function generate_remove_metaboxes()
        remove_action('add_meta_boxes', 'generate_add_layout_meta_box');
        remove_action('add_meta_boxes', 'generate_add_footer_widget_meta_box');
        remove_action( 'add_meta_boxes', 'generate_add_de_meta_box' );

    Let me know 🙂


    Thanks! It works!

    I would also like to ask how to hide:
    – Page Header metabox for all post types except pages
    – Right and left sidebars widgets

    This PHP should work for the Page Header:

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme','generate_remove_page_header_metabox' );
    function generate_remove_page_header_metabox()
        remove_action('add_meta_boxes', 'add_generate_page_header_meta_box');
    add_action('add_meta_boxes', 'generate_custom_page_header_metabox');
    function generate_custom_page_header_metabox() { 
    		'generate_page_header_meta_box', // $id  
    		__('Page Header','generate-page-header'), // $title   
    		'show_generate_page_header_meta_box', // $callback  
    		'page', // $page  
    		'normal', // $context  
    		'high' // $priority  

    Not sure what you mean by left and right sidebar widgets?
