Have you ever wondered how to get rid of the “Comments are closed” statement that appears at the end of your content? This is one of those pesky features that drive some WordPress site owners crazy.
There’s actually a super-simple solution.
All you have to do is add the following to the END of your theme’s style.css file:
If you are new to working with your style.css file, here are a couple of pointers:
You can access the stylesheet in your WP dashboard by going to Appearance > Editor.
It is usually the last, or almost last, file listed in the right column. Click on it, if it’s not already selected, and you will see the code for your stylesheet in the editor window.
First, copy, paste, and save the entire stylesheet to a text file on your computer. You want to have the original to go back to just in case you inadvertently delete something.
Or, for a full solution, you can use BackupBuddy to make a full backup. (That may be over-kill in this situation, but it never hurts to be safe.)
Once you have the style.css file showing in the editor window, scroll all the way to the bottom and add the three lines of code in the image above. (You aren’t adding the numbers in the gray box – they are just to help you see the code.)
Be sure to “update file”, then go view your site.
See how simple that is?
