How do I turn off further comments on a particular post?

  1. I seem to recall that at one time I could turn off comments for a particular post so that people could see the comments posted but no new comments could be added. I can't find that capability now.

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

  2. Edit a post then uncheck allow comments or something like that.
    By default this is at the bottum of the post edit page

  3. Many thanks.

  4. Oops, replied too soon. I went to the post, clicked "edit" and there is no option to discontinue comments. I thought perhaps that was because the post already had comments, so I clicked "new post" ---- again, no option to block comments.

    I think you have the same memory as I: we used to be able to do that, but the ability has been removed. Or is there a way I haven't found?

  5. It is in the "discussion" section below the main text area (unless you have chosen to hide that section. If there is not a "discussion" section under the text area, click on "screen options" at the top of the page and select "discussion" and it will then display for you.

  6. Aha! There it is. Many thanks. I knew I had seen it.

  7. You're welcome.
