[wp-hackers] How to remove URL field in Comments Form

If you're using the new default theme, Twenty Ten, then you could
write a filter that would remove it before comment_form() is called.
It would look something like this (in your functions.php, or a plugin,
or whatever):

add_filter( 'comment_form_default_fields', 'remove_comment_url_field' );
function remove_comment_url_field( $fields ) {
	unset( $fields['url'] );
	return $fields;

If you're using a theme that doesn't use comment_form() (new in 3.0,
so very likely), then you'd need to just hack the comments.php file
within your theme normally. Since the URL field is not required, you
shouldn't need to do any special handling (un-handling) to get around

I just did a short presentation on the comment_form() function at
WordCamp Savannah:
