blissful blog – unwanted Comment area: Leave a reply
Hi everyone, I am new to all this and cant figure out how to disable the “comment”. Unfortunately the area is on every page and I would like to leave it on the blog page. Anyone out there who knows?
The blog I need help with is ishinetoo.wordpress.com.
Go to Edit Page of your wanted page and scroll down: there will be an area labelled as “Discussion” where you can choose to allow comments and also pingbacks and trackbacks. Uncheck it/them, update page, repeat the process for the other pages you want and that should do it.
Follow this method if you also want no comments on some posts – this time by going to Edit Post instead of Edit Page. There’s also an option on your dashboard menu -> Settings -> Discussion section where you can choose to allow people to post comments on new articles or not by default (these settings may be overridden for individual articles.)
Here are the support pages: http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/new-page-screen/#discussion, http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/new-post-screen/#discussion
In fact, there’s an easier way to enable/disable comments on multiple pages simultaneously: go on your dashboard menu -> Pages, check the pages you want, go on the “Bulk Actions” dropdown menu at the top, select “Edit” and click “Apply. A new section will appear: click on the dropdown menu labelled as “Comments”, choose “Do not allow” and update. The method for enabling/disabling comments on posts is the same, you’ll just have to go to the Posts section instead of Pages.
Thanks!!! – great second comment and it worked absolutely beautifully :)
Glad to hear it.
Is there any way to receive comments but not enable them to be automatically posted, but only posted upon approval?
Yup, go on your dashboard menu -> Settings -> Discussion and on the section that says “Before a comment appears” check the “An administrator must always approve the comment” (that’s you) and save.
