But is there a way to also hide subpages or all pages under the parent using this? I tried just having it be "pagename/subpage", but the subpage name after the slash doesn't work even though it works without the slash. I tried using something like & #47; (without the space) to replace the slash, but that didn't work either. I wondered if the * modifier could be used for parent + all subpages, but it still throws an error at me. Might anyone know how to edit this properly to hide the subpage?
Hello. Thank you, but it isn't working; I'm still seeing comments on the subpage. It also says that "attribute selectors with ^= are slow!" in the CSS comments, does that mean I will have to wait a while for it to take effect rather than working quickly?
Technically, yes. But since they asked for a specific page, I am assuming there is a particular reason they want to hide it (ex. popular spam target or "controversial" topic). As long as you can give a good reason why Fandom should make an exception, they will likely allow it.
There was an example quite some time ago (I can't find the actual thread unfortunately) where a wiki had a rare use case for subpages in which having breadcrumb links in the page header actually made things more confusing. In that particular scenario, the got the "okay" from staff to hide the links using CSS.
An example of my own, the wiki I admin is old and uses a "not officially supported" extension. A while back, some of the changes Fandom made interfered with one of the features. Staff allowed me to write my own JS to correct the inadvertent changes even though such modification to the interface constitutes a violation of the customization policy.
FYI, FANDOM staff have said in the past that blocking all comments on a page is not a violation of the customization policy. Since Comments are not part of the Standard FANDOM features (they need to be enabled by an admin), the customization is allowed.
Of course, contacting FANDOM staff is the only real way to know.
I read over the customization policy, but did not see what could say that blocking comments would not be allowed. That said, thank you for the confirmation that it is okay. Yes, the only reason we block comments on very specific pages is because those pages attract a lot of arguing and people attacking each other. Since we want to keep our wiki kinder for the community, we only block comments if we have seen that those pages being open means that inevitable fighting will happen. On other pages, we would rather not block comments, because the community can interact or share their thoughts, so a full block of commenting would be as counter-productive as leaving all pages open.
The part it could have been covered by is the generic "Removal, changed placement or changed functionality of ads, spotlights, standard Fandom features". However, it appears from Fandyllic's information that Fandom does not consider it a "standard" feature in this sense because admins can just disable it anyways.
Another thing to put your mind at ease... over the years since the Comments feature was added we've given code on how to hide them on specific pages several times and I never remember anyone having it undone or prevented by FANDOM staff.
