Disable comments in WordPress

If you don't want to allow visitors to leave comments on your WordPress site, you can disable comments from your dashboard.

  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. On the left-side menu, select Settings > Discussion.
  3. In the Default post settings section, clear the checkbox next to Allow people to submit comments on new posts.

    Note: If you have comments enabled on individual posts or pages, individual settings will overwrite the default post settings for these posts or pages.
