Remove link of comment in WordPress

By default all links posted in the comments under your articles are turned by WordpPress into links.

Unfortunately, this features encourages spammers to post many unwanted comments in your blog.

To disable turning URLs from comments into actual links, go to your admin area and then navigate to Appearance -> Editor.


Select the functions.php file from the right column and add the following line just above the closing php tag ( ?> ):

remove_filter('comment_text', 'make_clickable', 9);

Then, I purged all caches and reloaded one post. Then there are no hyper-link in comments. Theses links are just pure text now, not clickable.

Should I remove Slick Savings?

I us IObit Uninstaller to clean my Windows 7. There is one program I found in the list, called Slick Savings.

I have never install this program on purpose. Actually, I don’t think I saw this name before.

So I check it by Google. It sounds like a bundle program came with other software.


Based on the information from search results 1.

Slick Savings is an ad-supported (users may see additional banner, search, pop-up, pop-under, interstitial and in-text link advertisements) cross web browser plugin for Internet Explorer (BHO) and Firefox/Chrome (plugin) and distributed through various monetization platforms during installation. The browser extension includes various features that will modify the default or custom settings of the browser including the home page, search settings and in some cases will modify Internet Explorer’s load time threshold, place a lock file within Firefox to prevent competing software from changing its settings as well as disable the browser’s Content Security Policy in order to allow for cross site scripting of the plugin.


It is simply to let IObit Uninstaller to remove Slick Savings. The alternative method can be found here.

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

It is a repeaded error. It happened when PC booting.

It looks like the hardware driver problem, which is a CIR Receiver. I googled it and found the Hauppauge Consumer Infrared Receiver.  I remembered that I installed Haupauge WINTV-USB2-FM Analog NTSC TV Stick before, and it has a remoter controler with a USB receiver.
