@touchstone: could you explain what's the difference between this extension and the ability in the Author Roles extensions to hide fields on role level?

honestly, I have no idea. I didn't know yours did that.

After a brief look, I would say mine would be more suited for hiding one or two fields, say an author field and a date field that both prepoulate, that the client doesn't need to change and shouldn't change for whatever reason. Without having to go through the rigmarole of creating authors and parameters for such a small tweak.

I was asked to create this by another regular on the forums who actively creates extensions themselvers so I didn't think to check for anything similar.

Ah ok, I could see for some light-weight author management this could come in handy. I was just wondering ;-)

Nice extension but doesn't immediately play ball with IE or Opera, very easy fixes. You need to check to see if the browser is IE or not for console.log

And for Opera just declare self as var self = $(this) instead of just self = $(this)

Should probably say that this is in assets/fieldsuppressor.publish.js
