Home Forums Backend Issues (wp-admin) remove_meta_box not working for 'normal' Reply To: remove_meta_box not working for 'normal'

  • So I found a solution that made it work for me. I noticed that all metaboxes are added in ‘high’ priority, except those positioned on the side. Luckily there is filter in ACF to change this. So I changed the priority to ‘core’ and the remove_meta_box started working.

    add_filter('acf/input/meta_box_priority', 'custom_meta_box_priority', 10, 2);
    function custom_meta_box_priority($priority, $field_group) {
    	$priority = 'core';
    	return $priority;
