    How can I deactivate footer with: filed under, tagged as and replace it with just simple comment module ?

    Why not add the module to the footer and edit the css to take care of the 'look and feel'?

    I have installed Jetpack and turned on comment module but it did not replaced the one is used in theme. I am not good at editing CSS so I am not sure how to do it well.

    Hi bojar.l,

    It is not quite clear what is the problem, and what you want to acchieve.

    However, if you want to turn on / off the comment box, do the following:

    1. In the dashboard open any page or post
    2. At the top of your screen [right] Press the 'screen options'-TAB
    3. activate the 'discussion' and 'comments' options
    4. scroll down
    5. In the 'discussion-box' you'll see two options:
      • allow comments
      • allow trackbacks
    6. Use these options to control the 'comments', below your posts and pages.

    Hi,

    ok so I'll try to explain. In the Theme there is footer which is added to every post. In the footer is possibility to comment, information about tags of this post and categories of it. Unfortunately the footer is not in my local language so I would like to disable it and substitute it with different one which is translated and can be easily edited.

    I do not see in options any button to switch on/off of this footer so probably I would have to do it by editing CSS. I am not experienced in that so I am looking for help how to easy disable the whole footer in this Theme.

    Hi bojar.l,

    You need to edit NOT the style.css, but footer.php

    Make a backup before you make any changes!!
    You can edit the text in this file that sits between '...'. Leave the rest as is.

    You can also use the footer.php in the following link.

    I've adapted the footer.php. [and blocked the org code; unblock to restore]

    Change 'xyz xyz' in any text you like, and upload to your site.

    OK, Thanks, it's not a footer, but you can change or remove it.
    To give you detailed info, please give the name of your theme [?pilcrow?]and the url of the site.

    Hi Lukasz,

    You need to add the following code to the style.css of your childtheme.
    If you don't have a childtheme yet, check below.

    .entry-links {
        visibility: hidden;
    }

    Alternatively you may use:

    .entry-links {
        display: none;
    }

    == == ==

    1. Install and activate 'one click childtheme plugin
    2. create the childtheme
    3. activate the childtheme
    4. Make the changes in the CHILDtheme!
      - copy php files / css-file(s) of the original theme [as required] to the childtheme directory and edit them as required.

    To allow comments / discussions:

    To turn on / off the comment box, do the following:

    1. In the dashboard open any page or post
    2. At the top of your screen [right] Press the 'screen options'-TAB
    3. activate the 'discussion' and 'comments' options
    4. scroll down
    5. In the 'discussion-box' you'll see two options:

    Does not work. Please remember that in childtheme I have set:

    display: none;
    }

    I've tested your theme, the above code and the advise about the discussion. Here it works fine.

    Make sure you tick the boxes for every page / post separately, to control the comments.

    Check for things that may interfere.

    Works only partially.
    comments works for every single post opened in new page but on main page where are all newest posts does not work. There is still no possibility to add comments.

    Try this:

    Dashboard > settings > Discussion >

    Check if the correct options are 'ticked'

    all options are ticked. No idea how to add comments on main page.

    I've had closer look at 'pilcrow'. It seems the code required for comments is not implemented in the index-page.

    Unfortunately my knowledge of php is not good enough yet to find the right answer.
    I hope someone else may be able to help.
