I have tried a number of different modules that claim to do this but none have worked, I have also tried changing the comment.tpl file, and I even tried using CSS "Display:none"; however nothing has worked. So how can I hide the "Comment" label on a comment form box? I am not talking about the comment title here, as this can be easily disabled in the content type settings. This is what I am talking about: enter image description here

I originally thought that this could be done in the manage display settings, by setting the comment label to hidden. So I did this but it didn't change the label of the comment box: enter image description here

So how can this be done? I simply want to hide the word "Comment" and the "*" after it of course.

You can easily do this with CSS. Looking at dev tools, I see that the label is called edit-comment-body-und-0-value (yours might be different). So what we need to do is, simply edit the CSS file and put in the line label[for*="edit-comment-body-und-"] { display:none; } and clear the cache at /admin/config/development/performance.

That's all there is to it.


  • I have tried using CSS however it doesn't hide it unfortunately. The only way I have managed to get close with CSS is to use the "label" tag (since the Comment is a label) and setting it to display none, however this affects ALL labels which is not ideal. If it works for you, could you post a screenshot because as I said I cannot get it to work using CSS classes/ids. I am using D7 by the way.

  • Thanks for that Kartagis, the problem though is that each comment box label uses a different label name. I've added a screenshot in my question showing the label name using Firebug. The problem is that the label name automatically adds "--#" at the end of the label name, so the first node comment box label will be "edit-comment-body-und-0-value", the next will be "edit-comment-body-und-0-value--1" then "edit-comment-body-und-0-value--2" and so on. This makes it impossible to use CSS because you have to add more CSS whenever a new node is created.

  • If I apply CSS to "edit-comment-body-und-0-value" it will only hide the first comment box's label and the rest of the label show. Any ideas how this can be solved?

 /* Remove the "your name" elements for authenticated users */
function YOURTHEME_form_comment_form_alter(&$form, &$form_state) {
if ($form['is_anonymous']['#value'] == false) {
$form['author']['#access'] = FALSE;
$form['comment_body']['und']['0']['#title'] = FALSE; //Remove the user name
$form['comment_body']['und']['0']['#title'] = FALSE;
$form['comment_body']['und'][0]['#required'] = FALSE;
