    Hi! I would like to remove the Leave a Reply text, which is positioned below the title on every post. The link doesn't work, and is taking up space, that I would prefer to use for something else, if not at least turn it into empty space.

    I believe that the link isn't working because I am using disqus. I am using the twentytwelve theme (on a child theme). I want to keep getting comments, but remove the text.

    Can you post a link to your site? Might be able to do it the easy way with CSS

    You can turn comments off in settings>discussion and then go to each post and remove any that exist.

    Or, review where this is called in TwentyEleven (such as single.php or category.php or archive.php - might be all the above) and then create the same named templates in your child-theme and modify the comment php.

    Example from single.php:

    <?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>

    Think he wants just to remove that text. Not remove comments.

    I'm useless - but I found clicking on pages > quick edit and then unticking allow comments made that bit go away. You have to do it for each page though. Sorry if that's not what you're on about :)

    On a child theme in comments.php, add an array designation to <?php comment_form...:

    <?php comment_form(
    array(
    'title_reply' => __( ' ' ),
    )
    ); ?>
