Add-On Type(s)



Create a hidden tab on your publish layout. This is especially handy when you want to hide required fields like url_title and entry_date.


  • Enable the Hidden Tab accessory in the add-on manager.
  • On any publish layout where you are in need of a hidden tab, just create a new tab called ‘Hidden’.

The ‘Hidden’ tab will be visible when editing the layout, but hidden when viewing the publish page.
