  • Hello. It appears that the search box is a widget, so you can go to appearance -> widgets, locate on which sidebar it’s placed and remove it.

    Do you want to remove commenting entirely or just replies?

    Yes I am sure it is a Widget, unfortunately it is not showing up as a widget, it is not listed in the widgets as I have deleted every Widget I can find, I have enabled every Theme that I have installed and deleted every widget from every thing that I can possiblly find.

    I can access the database and can not find it there either, may have to have another look at that?

    Comments:- No I just need to stop people commenting on other peoples comments, don’t ask me why, doing this for a friend, so logic is not involved.

    Thanks for any help….

    I have re installed it and it still shows in the header, the preview image also shows it there ?

    Can I not remove it?

    Thanks

    Ok got that sorted, it would seem that when you place a widget in the header area the search box goes away.

    BTW, just a thought for any designers, when creating the footer widget areas, would it not be better to make them more elastic to take up all space in the footer area, so if you only wanted to use one or two the whole footer space would be used, proportionally?

    Hi, glad you got the search widget sorted. Yes, it shows the search widget by default, which gets removed if you set your own widgets.

    To stop people from commenting to other users, you would need to make a child theme, and then remove the Reply button from comments. That way, users could only use the main comment box, and not reply to any certain comment.
