[resolved] Removing the "Notify me if..." from Comment form? (5 posts)

    I'm using the Twenty Ten theme. How do I go about removing the two "Notify me of follow-up posts" and "Notify me of follow-up comments" options from the comment form? They're great features, but unnecessary for my website. I figured they'd be easy enough to spot in the Comments.php or function.php, but no dice, it seems.

    Do not edit the Twenty Eleven theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    Thanks for the concern - I'm using a copied and modified version of Twenty Ten, with the original in tact and not being edited. All my edits have been done to the modified version, which is saved separately.

    That aside, any tips for getting rid of the Notify features?

    Yeah, I noticed the options in my Discussion settings from Jetpack, but neither of them are checked and yet the boxes persist.

    That did, however, point me in the right direction to editing the Jetpack plug-in. I deleted all the content from Subscriptions.php, and that got rid of them easily enough. It's also easy enough to redo it should an update roll around, and I've got the original backed up. Thanks for all the help!
