Disable Comment Author Links


This plugin removes all hyperlinks from comment author user names. Commenters can provide a home page (or any) URL along with their comment on a lot of themes. This plugin will strip all links from commenter names wherever they may appear throughout your site’s theme.


  1. Upload the disable-comment-author-links folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


What does this plugin do?

This plugin modifies the behavior of get_author_comment_link, a function in comment-template.php. It strips all HTML tags from the output, so commenter names never link to the website URLs they may provide when leaving comments.

Where can I see the change?

Anywhere comment author names are displayed on your website.
