    Hi,

    How can I get rid of the field “website” in the comment form on my blog?

    It can’t be removed in Settings -> Discussion.

    Thanks for the help.

    You can use WordPress’ comment_form_default_fields filter or a plugin to control the fields displayed in the comments form.

    If you use custom code use a number higher than 11 for the priority parameter (to make sure your filter is applied after the theme’s).

    Thank you for your answer. I had a look at the link you provided and if I want this filter to work I have to add it to the theme’s functions.php. But the Anima theme doesn’t let me access that, right?

    After browsing a bit I found this CSS code;

    #commentform .comment-form-url {display:none;

    That get’s the job done, but still I would be interested to know what you would have done yourself.

    Accessing theme or plugin files is a feature provided (or blocked) by WordPress, not the theme. However, editing theme files directly is generally bad practice (as such changes would be lost on every theme update). Customizations such as this need to be done either manually using a child theme or using alternative solutions (I remember there is a plugin in the repository which allows customizing comment form fields).
