Every page has a set of properties that can be viewed and edited by users; some are required when creating the page (create view), others can be viewed and edited (edit view) at a later stage. These page properties are defined and made available by the dialog (
cq:dialog) of the appropriate page component.
Customizing view of page properties is not available in the classic UI.
The default state for every page property is:
hidden in the create view (e.g. Create Page wizard)
available in the edit view (e.g. View Properties)

The recommended method for configuration and other changes is:

Create an override of the
moretitles section at the corresponding path; for example:
Apply the appropriate node property:
The More Titles and Description section will no longer be shown in the Create Page wizard.
