How To Disable HTML in WordPress Comments

If you don’t want users to post HTML in comments on your site, you can post the code below into your WordPress theme’s functions.php file:

/* Disable Hyperlinks in WordPress Comments */
remove_filter('comment_text', 'make_clickable', 9);
add_filter('pre_comment_content', 'strip_comment_links');

function strip_comment_links($content) {

global $allowedtags;

$tags = $allowedtags;
unset($tags['a']);
$content = addslashes(wp_kses(stripslashes($content), $tags));

return $content;
}
