Disable Image commenting (new?)

  1. Until you rolled out the new image handling, I never had an issue with comments being allowed on individual attached images with my Theme (Piano Black.) Now They are allowed and I don't know how to disable it. Is it possible to do it without having to mess with the database (as was suggested in one thread I looked at)?

    The blog I need help with is alienredqueen.wordpress.com.

  2. You can only have attachment pages with no comment box if you create the post under a no-comments-allowed default (in Settings > Discussion), then override that setting for the particular post after you publish it (post editor > Discussion module > tick “Allow comments on this post”, or Posts > Edit > Quick Edit > tick “Allow comments”). http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/images-the-three-link-options/

  3. Why did they change this? This sounds like a pain in the butt and a lot of unnecessary steps. Booo. Well, thanks for the tips.

  4. If I change the default setting now, it won't change on my previous post that already have comments, will it?

  5. Think I found an easier way... Where it says attachment link when you ad d the media, just change it to "None." Then you can't open the pic in another tab anyway, so no comments.

  6. I'm glad to hear you achieved what you want. Happy blogging.
