How do I remove the Website field in the WordPress comments form?

WordPress by its very nature, is attractive to Spammers seeking ways of publicising websites which may be totally irrelevant to the content of the host website. While active “bloggers” may have their own blog website, many casual commenters and surfers do not. Therefore, while you might want to allow comments, you may also want to remove the “Website” field requesting a URL.

The simple way.

Add this code to your style.css either in your theme, or even better, in your Child theme.

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

If you want to remove the display of the date and time of the comments too:

.commentmetadata a{display:none}
