    I have a question about form's customization in backend.
    I take in example the file NewsConfig.contentViewControls.NewsBackend.views.NewsBackendEdit.config .
    We can hide field item like this :
    <sections name="TaxonSection">
            <field hidden="True" fieldName="Category" />
            <field hidden="True" fieldName="Tags" />

    But how can we hide the sections without deleting it ?

    Hello Nicolas,

    Thank you for contacting us.

     When the section is in the config file you can comment it out, but if the section is one of the default sections go to Administration->Settings->Advanced->New->Controls->NewsBackend->Views->NewsBackendEdit->Sections->TaxonSection->Fields->Tags/Category and set "true" to the textbox hidden. This will not remove the section rectangle, but will render empty section.

    All the best,
    Stanislav Velikov
