Recently Jetpack version 1.2.1 added a subscription module that shows two checkboxes at the bottom of the comments form in your blog’s posts and pages. Today i wanted to get rid of that because as many others i already use a plugin for thisin many of my sites, so I tried to find a way to disable this subscription module looking at my WordPress panel comment settings.
Some of the modules do have several options and have a setting page from themselves as the Sharing module, and some are integrated in normal settings pages like the Gravatar hovercard module. With the Subscription module neither of these is the case and for a moment i thought there actually was no way to disable it, so i started googling about it and didn’t find much help at first, but eventually found this fortunate comment with the answer.
You can deactivate specific Jetpack “modules” by clicking the “Learn More” button for that module then the “Deactivate” button that magically appears. Hard to find, we know.
Said and done, as soon as I revealed and then clicked on the elusive Deactivate button, the checkboxes on the comments form went away.
This post was written with the hope to help anyone out there who is also wondering how to disable these modules.
