+# Remove Comments Absolutely
+Deactivate comments functions and remove areas absolutely from the WordPress install
+
+## Description
+The comment feature in WordPress is an essential component of blogs - but not in all cases it's needed,
+especially if you use it as a traditional CMS.
+
+Sure, you can just leave out the comment form while you creating a theme and disable the comment options
+in your backend. But this is not the best way for everyone. In such a case, I turn the comments off completely,
+making sure that the posts can not have that option and also remove the fields for the comments in the backend.
+That way the user gets exactly what he needs. Meanwhile, I have needed this so often that I created a small
+Plugin and I'm able to immediately „switch off“ the functions and comment areas.
+
+Also see the [post](http://wpengineer.com/2230/removing-comments-absolutely-wordpress/)
+about the idea.
+
+
