I decided to programatically print comments un Views using PHP footer. The problem is that they now appears twice (my code + default). When I disable comments in content type settings, both ddisappear. How can I disable the default comments and keep my comments printed by php code? I tried to edit node.tpl file. but there is no section responsible for showing comments there (I use Garland). Any advice appreciated.

  • could you be a little more specific? How would you like to display comments in your own PHP code? What's the difference? What about using Panels rather than Views+footer? (It would be good to better understand your problem not to advise things that don't match your case...)

Have you tried looking into the comment.tpl.php file?

You should be able to hide the 'real' db driven comments there and only display your printed comments.

  • I've checked it, but I don't want to alter their appearance, I just would like to remove the duplicate. What should I edit there? Also I could diable them in the database, but I am afraid that it would also disable my programatically created comments.
