how to remove HTML tags below comment box

  • fathima


    I am getting following message below Comment box.

    ‘You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <abbr title=””> <acronym title=””> <b>

    <cite> <del datetime=””> <i> <q cite=””>

    Please help me how to remove it from my blog.



    Go to Graphene Options –> Display –> Comments Display Options and select Hide allowed tags in comment form



    I’ve read countless reports regarding “You may use these HTML tags and attributes” below the comment box. Well, I don’t see anything like that below my comment boxes. For me the problem occurs when I try to share a blog post to Facebook.

    I’ve deployed a couple WordPress blogs using the Graphene them. I’ve seen this problem come and go. The above solution to “Hide allowed tags in comment form” does not fix the problem for me.

    Neither does it help to add the following to style.css (graphene-child) or to add it to Graphene Options -> Display -> Custom CSS:




    I am stuck – desperately need a solution.

    When you enable the “Hide allowed tags in comment form” option, the message regarding HTML tags and attributes below the comment box is not just hidden (as a CSS display:none would), but the HTML codes themselves are actually removed.

    So if it still appears when sharing to Facebook or other social media, it’s probably that your pages before you hide the allowed tags are cached by those social media.



    Thank you! I just encountered this issue, did a quick search here in the forum, found this answer, and it worked! Thanks very much!

    I for one have never figured out what objection people have to these. It’s not like people can hack your site by entering html in a comment form, is it?



    Kenneth, if you include the URL to your blog on Facebook, Facebook automatically adds a description paragraph – normally the first paragraph of the post. But without making this change, that description ends up being:

    ‘You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <abbr title=””> <acronym title=””> <b>

    <cite> <del datetime=””> <i> <q cite=””> ‘

    That’s not a good enticing teaser to invite people to read your blog post.
