Is there ANY way to remove comments function and section totally?

I don’t want any comment querys to run. I don’t wont anything about comments to be shown in wordpress admin area.

Is this possible in any way?

EDIT: Remove all links to the comments from admin bar, and all of the backend section.


Here is a list of all of the above answers and a removal of the admin bar link. Just add it to your themes function file or make it a plugin. I will mark this as a community wiki as everyone’s answer is right just no one added it all together.

// Removes from admin menu
add_action( 'admin_menu', 'my_remove_admin_menus' );
function my_remove_admin_menus() {
    remove_menu_page( 'edit-comments.php' );
// Removes from post and pages
add_action('init', 'remove_comment_support', 100);

function remove_comment_support() {
    remove_post_type_support( 'post', 'comments' );
    remove_post_type_support( 'page', 'comments' );
// Removes from admin bar
function mytheme_admin_bar_render() {
    global $wp_admin_bar;
add_action( 'wp_before_admin_bar_render', 'mytheme_admin_bar_render' );
