Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing HTML tags & Attributes from Comment Box

  • Resolved heal1841


    Hi everyone,

    I need help on my website At the end of the comment box is this,

    You may use these HTML tags and attributes:
    <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b>
    <blockquote cite=""> <cite>
     <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <strike> <strong>

    I would like to remove it however everytime I look it up the tutorials are either not for my version or for a different year. Can someone walk me through/explain step by step what to do? Thanks

    [Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button.]

    try to add this to the end of style.css of your theme:

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

    Like all the way at the bottom of the entire code? Or in the comment section? I tried that code in the comment section and it didn’t work although I was sort of trying to put it in all sorts of places and had no idea where to put it.

    you can add this basically anywhere to style.css – however, adding all edits/new styles to the bottom makes them easier to find, and makes sure that they overwrite other styles with the same selector.

    you might need to clear the browser cache to see the changes in your site – press ‘CTRL F5’ or ‘reload’ the webpage after you edited the styles.

    and make sure to reset your cache or whatever minifies the css at the moment.

    just a tip – please leave any edits in place until someone has had a chance to give you feed back…

    Thanks for your help, I added it to the very bottom but it still is there…

    have you cleared or reset the w3tc cache?

    I can’t find that style anywhere within the currently applied compressed styles.

    Yes it worked! Thanks so much, I just had to clear that out. Thanks again! Looks so much better 🙂

    i had used this code (.form-allowed-tags{display:none;}) in style sheet
    bt still it is nt working….
    what should i do?

    Thank you so much for this solution alchymyth! It worked for me as well and I know *nothing* about CSS 🙂
