Hide Comment on Single Event Listing Page

A user of WP Event Manager can display or hide the comment section on the single event listing page. In this guide, you will learn about how you can disable or hide the comment section on your single event listing page.

Here are the steps you need to take to perform the task:

  1. Open your child theme,
  2. Add the following code into the funtions.php file.
    function wpem_comment_disable( $open, $post_id ) 
        $post_type = get_post_type( $post_id );
        if ( $post_type == 'event_listing' ) {
            return false;
        return true;
    add_filter( 'comments_open', 'wpem_comment_disable', 10 , 2 );
  3. Find a single.php file in the parent theme directory & duplicate it in the child theme.

    Find comments_template() function in single.php.

    There should be the following code:

    if (comments_open() || get_comments_number()) :
         if ('event_listing' !== get_post_type()) :
  4. Save.
