The Easy Way to Remove the Popular Tab from a WordPress Taxonomy

Wow, that was a long title for this short article.

First off, I am assuming that you know how to add JS scripts to your WordPress admin. If not, you need to know that first.

So without further ado…

if ($ === undefined) {
    $ = jQuery;
}
if ($('#custom_taxonomy_id-pop').length) {
    $('#custom_taxonomy_id-pop').remove();
    $('#custom_taxonomy_id-tabs').remove();
    $('#custom_taxonomy_id-all').show();
}

There are other ways to go about destroying the meta box and rebuilding it manually. This, however, seems to be less invasive. It’s also a lot less code.
