Hide filter in section layout


Simply go to the directory components/com_content/views/section/tmpl/default.xml and add these options to the list of parameters: 

quote-mark1 <param name="filter" type="radio" default="1" label="Filter" description="Show/Hide the Filter ability"> <option value="0">Hide</option> <option value="1">Show</option> </param> <param name="show_pagination_limit" type="radio" default="1" label="Display Select" description="Show/Hide the Display Select dropdown"> <option value="0">Hide</option> <option value="1">Show</option> </param> quote-mark2

Be aware that you may need to re-implement this when making changes to the core like upgrading your version of Joomla!
