  • How to I remove “leave a comment”

    I don’t want any references to comments displayed on any pages.

    So far I removed the comments template code from index.php in the template

    Please advise

  • If you do not want to use the commenting feature at all… you can remove the code “<?php comments_template(); ?>” from the single.php file of your theme.

    Also disable comments on the Discussion page under Settings, simply removing the code isn’t 100% fool-proof.

    Thanks wp_guy but I don’t have a single.php file in my template

    I have..

    archives
    comments
    footer
    functions
    header
    home
    index
    l_sidebar
    r_sidebar
    page
    search
    style
    404
    images folder

    What other file do I need to edit?

    haochi – disabling comments in the admin panel is what I did first.

    If you don’t have a single.php… then index.php is used instead… do you see a “<?php comments_template(); ?>” in your index.php file?

    Thanks…I mentioned that I had already done this in my original post.
    The template is gone but I still have “leave a comment” at the bottom of my posts.

    How do I get rid of this link?

    Is it just the “leave a comment” text? no comments form?

    Look for this in index.php,

    <?php comments_popup_link(__('Comments (0)'), __('Comments (1)'), __('Comments (%)')); ?>

    or something VERY similar. Thats what you are looking to delete.

    If you cant locate it, provide a link to where your current theme can be downloaded. Please not a “here is an almost link”, but the actual page.

    Yes, it’s just the “leave a comment” text
    The comments template has been deleted.

    whooami…I couldn’t locate it in index.php

    Actual page….

    Thank you

    Actually the code that whooami mentioned is found in archive.php for that theme.

    Thanks
    I removed it from this code in archives.php but “leave a comment” still remains on in the post on the home page.

    <div class=”postmeta”>
    <p><?php the_time(‘F j, Y’); ?> | Filed Under <?php the_category(‘, ‘) ?> |  <?php edit_post_link(‘(Edit)’, ”, ”); ?></p>
    </div>

    Please advise

    Maybe it’s home.php …

    home.php

    <div class="postmeta">
    			<?php the_time('F j, Y'); ?> | Filed Under <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php comments_popup_link('Leave a Comment', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?>&nbsp;<?php edit_post_link('(Edit)', '', ''); ?>
    
    		</div>

    I told you what to look for, you have to take a little initiative and look through the other files… :<

    Worked!

    Thanks very much for your patience.

    I wish you well.
