Is it possible to remove the link of a content type from under the "New" section of the dashboard, even if it's creatable? I'd have that link somewhere else.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Zoltan,

Why not remove that "creatable" setting? Because you could still display the "Video" link in your custom dashboard menu anyway.

Hi :-),

thanks, but what I forgot to mention that the items should still be able to be listed under admin - uncreatable ones can't.

You can't. Why would you? If it's creatable, it's under New.

To manage all related functionality from under one menu item, like for example everything video-related ;-)?

Then maybe create your own VideoAdminController?

I don't see how having the entry under New is a problem at all and prevents you from also having another entry wherever you want. Everything that is creatable will be under New and that's that ;)

Thank you both! I'll discuss this with customer ;-) then.
