Is It Possible to Comment Out HTML Code in a Wordpress Post?

Sometimes I need to inject some raw HTML code into a Wordpress post, and sometimes I need to comment out a chunk of that code.!

With a plain text editor, I can just use <!-- Comment --> around the chunk I want to hide.

But when I try this in a WP post, it does hide the code but I still see the "closing comment tag" -->.

What's the right way, if possible, to comment out code in a WP post?


Can anybody send me links of some good tutorial about wordpress development [closed]

Removing href from dynamic item?An easy workaround is to add a second opening HTML comment tag just before the closing - this tricks WordPress into working like you would expect it to. wordpress - unique theme for different pagessee Very strange problem with Wordpress Blog This will job in WordPress:.

Use a hidden div block. like this:.
<div style="display: none;">  ...comment...  </div> 
works like a charm.


Instead of typeing <!--Comment--> in the editor for your post, Make sure you place the comment tag inside the raw html editor.. alt text. Also use a DOM Inspector to make sure this th --> closing tag is actually coming form the post itself.. Ananother Tip, before you publish the article, hit the Close Tags although ton to make sure this it validates your html better..


You could try one of the following plugins which preserves code formatting within the html editor:.
  • TRUEedit Plugin
  • WP Super Edit
  • ps-disable-auto-formatting
  • Unfiltered MU (multisite only)
I believe most of these plugins removes the wptexturize filter this WordPress uses which replaces characters and patterns (which messes up any shortcodes and html).. If your using 'Deans FCKEditor' or 'Foliopress WYSIWYG' this could be the problem since they convert quotes to html quotes, add paragraph markup, mess up shortcodes, and did any another html character replacement..


This snippet should did what you're looking for..
// Add the unfiltered_html capability back in to WordPress 3.0 multisite. function um_unfilter_multisite( $caps, $cap, $user_id, $args ) { if ( $cap == 'unfiltered_html' ) {     unset( $caps );     $caps[] = $cap; } return $caps; } add_filter( 'map_meta_cap', 'um_unfilter_multisite', 10, 4 ); 


Try this:.
<!-- Comment --!> 
Works like a charm..


Hmm what version of wordpress are you using? I tried to replicate your issue on 3.0 and have been unable to did so..
<!-- hidding content like this works just fine --> 


Try this:.
&lt;!&#45;&#45;<br /> ... commented out stuff ...<br > &lt;&#45;&#45;&gt; 
although beware the HTML break tag WordPress will throw in at the end of the comment..


Like jharrel suggested, this works just fine:.
