How to remove comment box but leave Facebook comment plug-in (12 posts)

    Hi!

    I have a Swift Theme site and generally I'm very pleased with it but there are some things that are really annoying me.

    Most of all I really want to delete the standard comment box at the bottom of each post but have my Facebook comment box, which I installed as a plug-in. When I delete the code on the single page editor for the comment box, both disappear.

    Surely other people who have Facebook comment boxes have the same issue? It looks crowded to have both!

    Thanks so much in advance for your help guys!

    My site is http://www.ohdearism.com

    No because there are two comment boxes at the end of each post... one facebook one (which I want to keep) and one standard one (which I want to delete without losing the FB one)

    Thanks for your help

    I am also wondering how I can remove the standard "Leave a Reply" or comments box at the end of each post. If anyone can help, it would be appreciated.

    I am too also wanting to know how to remove the "Leave a Reply", remove all the comment boxes and the submit button. If you remove these of the commments.php then you get a parse error, syntax error.

    Thanks

    For those of you looking to remove the "Leave a Reply", the commment boxes and so on. I just found the answer. Got to the page.php and look for this line <?php comments_template('', true); ?>, then delete just that line and save it. It will remove it all.

    dianem326, where do I go to the page.php? I am using a template and went to "editor" and didn't see the string you have above.

    You will find the page.php in your FTP files under wp-content/themes/(name of your theme) files. Hope that helps.

    To remove Leave a reply from your single posts, you can go to single.php through your desk, click on edit, then single.php and delete this line: comments_template();
    from here:

    while (have_posts())  
    
     {
    
       the_post();
    
       get_template_part('content', 'single');
    
       comments_template();
    
    }

    I changed the comment setting on the Discussion tab but it didnt delete the comment form

    The current CSS is:

    I have a plugin to get and post comments to Facebook. To remove the standard comments box from the bottom of each page I commented out the second to last line in the comments.php file for my theme.

    Go to Dashboard/Appearance/Editor and load the comments.php file from the right hand list. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for <?php comment_form(); ?>

    Edit the line to read <!-- ?php comment_form(); ?>-->

    Click the Update File button.

    I now have the post followed by a Facebook comments box and a list of comments.

    Hope this helps :-)
