    Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions in the readme.txt file, specifically:

    **How can I get rid of the Comments?**

    I thought long and hard about whether to add this feature in the gallery carousel or not. Because the goal is to transform your standard galleries into an immersive full-screen experience, I think that comments are necessary. This is why I will NOT be adding an option to turn the comments off.

    However, if you want to turn off comments on Media attachments, you can follow this tutorial:

    How to Disable Comments on WordPress Media Attachments

    I think it should be a choice the we should be able to make ourselves as websites users/makers! I would really urge you to reconsider.

    As well as to the following: there is an option to open the images to their real size. I would also like there to be an option to disable this. Because now it opens into a new tab and you are able to download the image even though you have a plugin which disables right mouseclicks etc so pictures or texts are “protected”.

    Is there a possibility to disable this the “open to real size”? A reaction would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Kind regards, Sandra Stokmans

    I second this! It should be up to us, the users of the plugin, to decide how we want our sites to look. I would love the option to disable both commments and “open to real size”.

    If you don’t want to modify the plugin, then just tell us if there is a section of code we can remove to disable these two features we don’t want.

    Hello n7 studios, please read the comments above, do you have a reaction for us (please reconsider! :))…

    Kind regards, Sandra



    I could tell you the reason why to disable comments. Sometimes there are several hundreds pictures in gallery and people watch them clicking 2-3 times per second: next, next, next. This could be faster then processing requests like

    GET /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php action=get_attachment_comments&nonce=….

    On the server side the request queue and server load grow and grow and after a few minutes user is blocked as DOS attack (if you are lucky and have DOS protection) or your server have problems for some time.

    I know that thoughtless clicking is stupid and such idiots deserve blocking but your code could be foolproof and disabling comments, particularly when you do not use them is wise solution.

    This is what worked for me!

    /* ==========Hide Comment Form & Link========== */
    #jp-carousel-comment-form-container, /* Form */, /* Link */
    #jp-carousel-comments-loading /* Loading Comments text */ {
    display: none !important;

    /* ==========Remove Padding from Link Area========== */
    .jp-carousel-buttons {
    padding: 0 !important;

    .jp-carousel-wrap {
    display: none;
