I'd like to customize my WordPress blog in such a way that it is no more possible to access the comments feed.

Other feeds should still be available, and it should still be possible to add comments to any article.

I tried to find a plugin to do this, but what I found is a all or nothing feature, without the possibility to finely adjust which feeds are allowed and which are not.

function remove_comment_feeds( $for_comments ){
    if( $for_comments ){
        remove_action( 'do_feed_rss2', 'do_feed_rss2', 10, 1 );
        remove_action( 'do_feed_atom', 'do_feed_atom', 10, 1 );
add_action( 'do_feed_rss2', 'remove_comment_feeds', 9, 1 );
add_action( 'do_feed_atom', 'remove_comment_feeds', 9, 1 );

Am I missing something? How/where does $for_comments get defined? –  Pat J Dec 11 '13 at 21:01
This is the original callback - do_action( $hook, $wp_query->is_comment_feed ), where it serve the variable $comments in the hooked function. –  Shazzad Dec 11 '13 at 21:04
Yeah, I just read the snippet on the Action Reference page under do_feed_$feed: Action function argument: true (the feed is for comments) or false (it is for posts). –  Pat J Dec 11 '13 at 21:05
thank you for this very fast answer. I'm not sure what to do with this code : where should I put it ? –  Jérôme Dec 11 '13 at 21:07
active themes functions.php file, or in an active plugin file. –  Shazzad Dec 11 '13 at 21:09
