Uncomment — Disable Comments

Description

Your one-stop shop to completely disable comments and remove all comment functionality and interface elements from your theme and administration screens.

While WordPress allows you to disable comments site-wide via the comments setting screen, the Uncomment plugin goes one step further and disables or hides all interface elements and other functionality related to comments on your WordPress site.

Starting with Uncomment consists of just two steps: installing and activating the plugin. Uncomment is designed to disable or hide commenting functionality on your WordPress site without any additional settings. Uncomment also works great as a must-use plugin.
