ShushThatNoise – Ignorant Comment Hider


Hide unwanted comments without deleting them. Edit the comment and wrap the offending text in [shush][/shush]. Example: [shush]FIRST!!![/shush] or [shush reason=”Boring”]FIRST!!![/shush]

Readers can choose to read the buried comment by clicking on the “Show” link.

(Bonus: You can also use this shortcode in your posts as a “Spoiler” hider.)


  • Edit the comment and put the [shush][/shush] around the text you want to hide.
  • The comment text will be hidden.
  • If a reader clicks on the “Show” link, they can read the text.
  • You can use the “reason” attribute to specify a reason.
  • The value of the “reason” attribute will show up in the comment.
  • It works the same.
  • Bonus: If [shush][/shush] is used in a Post, the description will say “Spoiler”.
  • You can Show/Hide multimedia as well.
