how to remove comments tab from confluence page

how to remove comments tab from confluence page. I am using Atlassian Confluence 5.8.18 version.

I have tried to include the below script in HTML Comment Macro, however it did not work.

<script type="text/javascript">
 for (var i=0; i<nr_li; i++) {
    // if the element has the class fom 'clasa' parameter
    if(tags_li[i].getAttribute('class') == 'innerCell'){
         tags_li[i].style.overflow = 'visible';
            //tags_li[i].style.overflow-y= 'visible';

I think you could do this with just CSS. Have a look here:

Space Tools -> Look and Feel -> Stylesheet

#comments-section {

If this answers your question, please mark it as solved.

Are you wanting to remove the comment section below the page, or inhibit the ability of a user to add inline comments?

And only for one page, or space wide?

I can recommend this free app called HideElements for Confluence. You can easily hide lots of elements for a page.
