Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

Website in comment form leads to author name as a link in the comment list

Old Jun 2, 2011, 06:49 PM
I have been looking in this forum, on Google, and in the plugin list, but have not come up with a solution for this problem:

In the comment form a visitor can fill in the website field. This will result in the name becoming a link to that website, which is what I don't want.

I have looked for a way in which there is no need to alter the source code, because of the trouble that will give when updating.

I have searched for a way to just delete the website field from the form. Haven't found how to do that without changing the source code.

I have searched for a way in which the name is not translated to a link to the website. Haven't found a solution either.

And I haven't found a plugin that can handle this.

I have noticed that I can edit the comment and delete the website, but that is not something I like to do for every comment with the website field filled in that comes in.

Does anyone have an easy solution where there is no need to make adjustments to the source code?

Thanks in advance!

By the way: the "BFA recent comments" widget handles this problem perfectly, which is nice. I would like that for the comment list as well, but really, any solution along the lines above is fine.

You could use something like the following in ATO>Add HTML/CSS Inserts>CSS Inserts
HTML Code:
#commentform #url, #commentform #url+label {
    display: none;
I just used Firebug to look up the selectors
