[Resolved] Removing "Leave a reply" on the top of post

  • I see there are 2 “Leave a reply”s in my post : in the top of post after title, and the 2nd is in the end of post. How can I remove the 1st one? I think most people wants to leave a reply after reading the post, and not after reading the title. 🙂
    Thank you for your kind help.

  • I too am struggling to find where this bit of code is. Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Do not edit the Twenty Twelve theme. It is the default WordPress theme and having access to an unedited version of the theme is vital when dealing with a range of site issues. First create a child theme for your changes.

    Already done Esmi

    Create a new copy of content.php in your child theme and remove:

    <?php endif; // is_single() ?>
    			<?php if ( comments_open() ) : ?>
    				<div class="comments-link">
    					<?php comments_popup_link( '<span class="leave-reply">' . __( 'Leave a reply', 'twentytwelve' ) . '</span>', __( '1 Reply', 'twentytwelve' ), __( '% Replies', 'twentytwelve' ) ); ?>
    				</div><!-- .comments-link -->
    			<?php endif; // comments_open() ?>

    If you are using any post formats other than Standard, you may have to do the same thing with the other content-xxx.php template files.

    Many thanks Esmi – done and working

    Excellent 🙂

    I tried doing this, and it didn’t work for me. I was working in Dreamweaver, and after I deleted the portion it told me there was a syntax error in line 57:

    </footer><!– .entry-meta –>

    Any idea what I might have done wrong? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hey PattyDB,

    Try removing everything that Esmi said except the first line. Just don’t remove this one

    <?php endif; // is_single() ?>
