In admin/structure/types/manage/my_content_type/display, you can hide/show the fields to display.
There is a Links field that you can also hide/show.

What is the purpose of this field? Nothing is changing in my output when I hide it.

The Links section is used normally in Teaser section/display to display links like add comment, read more, etc.

On Node Full Display, it is depending on configurations we do. Such as "Add new comment" link will only be visible when we disable "Show reply form on the same page as comments" check-box in comment field settings. You can also give a try to Flag Module or other contributed modules which adds links on Node display.

Please check screenshot below (Teaser Display): enter image description here

The above screenshot is of default Teaser Display of node type article, which is being displayed on site home page. When we hide Links from teaser display, these links are no more visible in node teaser.

Following screenshot shows links working in Node Full Display: Depending on configuration we do in comment field (check screenshot below), comment link will be visible on Full Display. enter image description here

Comment link visible, when checkbox is disabled. enter image description here

Comment link is not visible, when checkbox is enabled. enter image description here

  • Many thanks, you are completely right, but I think there is a bug, because it is working for the teaser but not for any other view mode (I just test it)

  • Many Thanks Yogesh, this is much more clear! But there is still a problem not related to the comment system: why the "read more" link only appears on the Teaser view mode?

  • Because Read more link take user to full node view from teaser, and from full node display it can't go to other view.

    ok, but I have a view mode like a teaser. I called it "grid". I was expecting to see the "read more" link in it... I feel I am asking too much. Many thanks for your help!!!
