Hide comments section when not used.

    When using WordPress more as a CMS, you sometimes don't need a comment/links section.

    For that reason, isn't it more logical to hide the comments section when totally disabling everything in the comment settings? It would make things easier then installing a plugin or changing the functions.php file.
    Or when the links section isn't used (who actually does use this?), give an option to hide the entire section from the admin.

    It would add quiet a lot extra value, while these changes are minimal to upgrade the WordPress experience...

    I agree. I never used Links in any site I developed (and there's lots of them). One of the first functions in my standard reusable functions.php file is hiding the Links from menu. For comments - I hide them as well if I don't use a commenting system on a website. But it hides not only comments but also trackbacks...

    If you don’t want comments to be displayed on a page, at the bottom of the Edit Page screen there’s an option to disable comments and pingbacks/trackbacks. Depending on the theme that you use, the comment section may or may not be displayed when commenting is disabled
