Remove "Add Form" button from custom post type Edit page

  1. Hi, I have a "Directory" custom post type, and don't want users to add forms in the WYSIWYG section. So I need to hide/remove the "Add Form" button here, but keep it visible on the "Post" edit page.

    I can't find any hook to do this. Is it possible to remove the "Add Form" button next to "Add media" button for a given cutsom post type edit page?

    Thanks!

  2. So you would like to leave the button to insert a Gravity Form visible when editing a post, so long as it is not one of your custom post types?

  3. Exactly! In our site, it doesn't make sense to add a form for a custom post type created to add people in a team, or to manage a directory of companies.

    I couldn't find any hook to do that. Am I wrong?

  4. Please add this to your theme's functions.php: http://pastebin.com/UBXeVhEk

    That should hide the "Add Form" icon for custom post type"directory". I just tested it with the post_type of "page" since I don't have a Directory custom post type, and it hid the icon for me.

  5. You could also create a role which does not have the capability to add forms to a post. Hiding the icon will not prevent someone from inserting the [gravityform] shortcode. It just removes clutter from the interface.
