Why do I say “almost”? Because the first release of Editor Features could not hide metaboxes.
I'm happy to say that you can now use PublishPress Capabilities to hide metaboxes. This means that when users are writing a post, you can hide ANYTHING that you don't want them to see.
Why would you want to hide features from your users? Some people do this so that the post editing screen is cleaner and less confusing. Other people do this for security and to prevent users from changing some key settings.
One of our most popular recent posts on this blog explained how to rearrange metaboxes in the Gutenberg editor. This post is useful because the system for moving metaboxes has some confusing points.

With the PublishPress Checklists plugin, you can require that site's content meets minimum standards with the Yoast SEO plugin. If the content doesn't meet those standards, you can choose to show a warning, or prevent the post from being published.
Many sites require that their content meets Yoast SEO standards. This helps ensure that their content is optimized for search engines.
The Checklist plugin integrates with the SEO and Readability features in Yoast SEO.
How to use the Yoast SEO tasks
Go to Checklists > Settings. The image below shows the Yoast SEO options.
You can enter choices for both options. Choose either “OK” (yellow/orange) or “Good” (green).
If you enable the Yoast SEO option, they will be visible when you edit content.
If you don't meet the minimum requirements, the checklist items will be shown in red. In the image below, the Readability score is “OK” (yellow/orange) and the SEO analysis score is “Needs improvement” (red).
