I am stuck at was created by iqsafe
I am building a free advertising website using Drupal 7.41. I created a content type and called it (addad). When I come to view the form I can see some unwanted things like the Language drop down list which offers selections for Neutral, Arabic and English languages. I used to remove these by using the Firebug and select the appropriate CSS class or ID. This time I was stuck and I could do it only by removing the multilingual support from the content type settings page. Can you please suggest something. I can give you my admin user name and password if it is privately kept. Thanks

Hi and welcome, iqsafe. We're delighted to have you with us at OSTraining.

Can you talk me through this task a little more ...

Why are we removing the language dropdown box? Is it because you'd like to run the site 100% in Arabic, or do you just want to hide this from some users?

Ok, do you want any English on your site at all? If not, the best approach here will be to make your site mono-lingual. We can remove the English features entirely.

I am not quite sure, I am afraid of this mainly because I like to keep working with the English interfaces. I leave it to you to decide. I English tool tipped the menu items so that I leave a way for non Arabic speaker to understand some of the site. This matter I leave to you, considering leaving me a way to revert back to original settings. However, this site is entirely for Arabic audience. Thanks

Ok, I can understand you wanting to still use some items in English.

Have you used the Display Suite module before? We've got an tutorial here, and in Step 3 we use Display Suite to clean up the content form and remove unwanted elements www.ostraining.com/blog/drupal/clean-drupal-content-form/

Thank iqsafe

Both Display Suite and Panels allow you to completely the customize the content creation form.

Panels is even more radical than Display Suite - you really can modify the whole page.

Let me know if you have any questions on this. We have video classes on both Display Suite and Panels:

Thank you so much for indicating these two videos to me. BTW, once I used panels by converting some views into blocks which I later included them in a panel page. I will turn back to these two videos to fill in possible gaps in my knowledge after finishing writing another question which has a higher priority over this.
