Hiding comments field when using Checklist plugin.

Really liking the Checklist plugin, we are planning on purchasing it.  Our big problem is JIRA insists on putting a comment field on every screen.

I have seen this workaround, adding this into the description field:


<script type="text/javascript"> AJS.$('div.comment-input').css('display', 'none'); </script>

The workaround with inline script to remove the comment field ONLY seems to work with single line text boxes, I can't get it to work with checklist types.

Is there a better way, that's not a ugly hack that could break at at given future JIRA update?   We don't want a comment field on our checklist screens.

Hi Mark,

I understand what you are trying to do but I don't understand what comment exactly you are trying to remove. Can you attach a picture and highlight what you want to remove. I will see if I can help you with that.
