Let’s say you want to have a list of announcements, but you would like it to present itself in a blog format, so within SharePoint, you set up the Blog site template. However, since it’s merely announcements, you don’t really want any to be able to comment on each of the items.

All you need to do is to create a Hidden Content Editor Web Part and include the following JQuery code:

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
	$(".ms-PostFooter").hide()
});
</script>

What this does is to hide the little portion below each post that allows readers to post links/email or add comments. This needs to be done on the home page that shows the list of blog posts, along with the individual Post page.

Of course, remember that the ‘function’ part that surrounds the code that does the actual work is the JQuery ‘Document Ready’ shortcut, and you don’t need that if you already have it in your existing code block.

And, lastly, if you want to use CSS and don’t want to use JQuery, you can use:

.ms-PostFooter {
	DISPLAY: none
}
