Support » Fixing WordPress » Removing the "Your comment" textarea or make it optional

  • Hi all,

    My goal:
    I want users just to leave their E-Mail address and Name below a post.
    Please note: If possible I’d like to avoid plugins and external services like MailChimp.

    My questions:

    1. How can I remove the textarea?
    2. Can I make the comment textarea optional?

    I’ve searched high and low, but now I’m a bit lost if this is possible at all.

    I stumbled upon some filters, but they always remove fields I’m not interested in 🙂


    function remove_comment_fields($fields) {
        return $fields;

    Thank you very much in advance for your time.
