Hide Website URL When Adding New Comment?

Nov 26, 2008 at 7:33 PM
I'm hoping to use this great blog engine on an intranet.

As a result the ability to record the website of a commenter is not so relevant and indeed may be confusing to some users.

Is there a way that I can hide or remove the txtWebsite box? Obviously there is no simple setting such as there is to hide the Country Chooser. I tried simply adding Visible=false to the code. However as I'm not much of a programmer I can't resolve the other issues this causes. I was hoping someone might now of a quick way to hide the field that does will not affect the rest of the code.

Thanks for any help.

Strange that no one has replied to this post.

The Website feature seems to greatly encourage SPAM posts, because it gives the poster a free link to whatever they want.  I'm also surprised that there is not a setting to turn this off.  Any reason?

see this discussion, there is a bug in the admin settings for turning off the website box.  When you turn this off, saving a new comment hangs.
