Delete URL Website Field from WordPress Comments Form

Its very simple to delete the Website URL Field from your WordPress Comments Form. 

This will help not encourage spammers wanting to submit posts to get a URL backlink on your site. You should also tick the options to hold posts on more than 1 URL link within the post as well. 

To remove the Website field do as follows:-

1 - Log into your /wp-admin
2 - Click Appearance
3 - Click Editer
4 - Click the file named - comments.php

5 - Delete the whole line below. (because the website field is not a required field it will not cause any issues to your existing posts (unlike the name and email fields.) 

<p><input type="text" name="url" id="url" value="<?php echo esc_attr($comment_author_url); ?>" size="22" tabindex="3" />
<label for="url"><small><?php _e('Website','cover-wp') ?></small></label></p>
