Delete the box under Comments (7 posts)

    Hi. Brand new WP user here frustrated!

    I am using "The Bootstrap" Theme.

    I have a box under comments that reads "You may use these HTML tags and attributes" and has html tags inside the box. I would like to remove this. None of the fixes I have searched in this forum or online have helped. The fixes either deleted the comment box completely or

    Also, I can see the comment form on my home page but not on another page. Is there a way to select where I put it? I have looked everywhere in my settings and can't find anything.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    This is what I have in my comments.php (which I just learned through my searching, so please don't think I know much more than that!)

    /** comments.php
    * The template for displaying Comments.
    * The area of the page that contains both current comments
    * and the comment form. The actual display of comments is
    * handled by callbacks which are located in the functions.php file.
    * @author Konstantin Obenland
    * @package The Bootstrap
    * @since 1.0.0 - 05.02.2012




    /* End of file comments.php */
    /* Location: ./wp-content/themes/the-bootstrap/comments.php */

    apply one of the fixes to this line:


    for example:

    comment_form(array('comment_notes_after' => ''));

    Thank you for trying to help, but unfortunately that fix did not work. When I do that, and some other fixes (assuming in comments.php) it deletes the entire comment box as well as the social media widgets that I have on the right of the page.

    Any other ideas?

    try posting in the theme's specific support section:


    or try a css fix:

    .form-allowed-tags { display: none; }

    (no idea how the theme integrates custom styles; possibly use a custom css plugin ?)

    I'm not sure what you mean by the above, where I should put that line. My apologies though, I thought I was in that bootstrap support section. Goes to show how tech-unsavvy I am!

    where I should put that line

    the best is possibly to install a css plugin where you an add any edited css styles;

    choose from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php?q=custom+css
