Allow disabling default modules to encourage only using custom modules

The default modules are too generic and offer to much style customization. It would be great if an admin can disable some or all of the default modules and then display custom modules they create.

 

This is something that could also be apart of a theme as a setting file.

- Allowed default modules

- Allowed default tinymce rich text editor options

Thanks for submitting this idea! 

This is something we have been talking about as we expand the capabilities of themes, and what developers can control using theme.json.

A theme setting allowing for the specification of what modules you want to allow/show would be ideal.

Many thanks for adding your voice to this desired functionality on this Ideas's forum.

We are also looking for a way to make the default HubSpot modules invisible as we are not actually using them. Making the list of modules clearer and preventing users from selecting the wrong module (and leading to inconsistency on our website).

 

At the moment there's no way to hide/disable them, so you have our vote.

please add this functionality, it's very useful especially for enterprise customers who had a lot of themes and want to restrict their users to use only their own modules.

It's must have disable default modules becouse custom development not make sense if user can use both type modules(

Yeah this is a must for us too.

 

When onboarding marketers we'll specify not to use these modules. It's a huge no in basic UX. Its like having a button that you need to educate and remind users not to push... it's better to remove the opportunity.

 

Thanks

This is perfect! Really makes custom themes easier to deploy to content teams and we can remove a redundant step in onboarding now.

 

Cheers!

well well, at first time this looks awesome, but when i add the disbled modules to the list, i cant edit blog posts... so this is not usefull at all. Not sure why but when i delete all modules from the list, come back to normal
