    I would like to activate a third party service like livefyre or discus for comments on my blog.
    How do I disable the existing comments system in Enfold?
    I am doing a trial with facebook comments and I have both displayed.

    I read something in other posts here. I read I would have to delete some code, however I don’t feel comfortable/safe deleting code without being sure that it achieves exactly what I am looking to achieve.
    So apologies if I am asking a question that has already been answered.
    Many thanks for your help.

    Hi malkoin!

    Either of the other services should have direction for you on where to add in their hooks if needed. The comment loop is located in includes>loop-comments.php for your reference.

    Hi Devin,
    thanks a lot for your note.
    I am sorry but I can’t understand when you say: ” The comment loop is located in includes>loop-comments.php for your reference.”
    Thanks.
    Regards.

    Hi!

    If you want to delete the comment template on posts, you can edit single.php and find this code:

     //wordpress function that loads the comments template "comments.php"
                            comments_template( '/includes/comments.php');

    Replace it with:

     //wordpress function that loads the comments template "comments.php"
                            //comments_template( '/includes/comments.php');

    Remove browser cache then reload the page.

    Cheers!
    Ismael

    Is there an alternate way to do this in Enfold 3.0 settings or custom css without editing the php file?

    Hey!

    You can go to Settings > Discussions to disable the comments section. Or add this on Quick CSS or custom.css:

    .comment-entry.post-entry {
    display: none;
    }

    Best regards,
    Ismael
