In most standard WordPress themes, you’ll see before and after comment notes. This is an example from Twenty Twelve theme:
I’ve seen many people asking how to remove any of these notes. It turned out that this is very simple to do. Using
comment_form_defaults filter, we can easily customize the notes or completely remove them.
Here’s a working snippet that can be placed on
functions.php file of your theme.
comment_form_defaults filter accepts many parameters and to customize the before notes, we need to pass
comment_notes_before parameter and to customize the after notes, we need to pass
comment_notes_after parameter. The code above will completely remove the before and after comment notes. Here’s the result:
If you wish to change the before and after notes, simply put your text inside the
' ' tag and it will overwrite the default notes. Example:
$fields['comment_notes_before'] = 'This is an exampe of before comment notes.'; // Overwrite the default before comment notes.
