Have you created a read only page or post on your WordPress blog and don’t wanna get responses on that page? So, you can easily disable comments on any individual post or page without having to use any WordPress plugin. In fact, WordPress itself has a great feature by which you can disable comments on any page onto you don’t wanna receive responses.
I needed this feature of WordPress yesterday when I got a response on the page of “Subscription thanks” because I forgot to disable comments on that. I created it just as a read only page and so finally I disabled comments on that page.
Disabling Comments on Any WordPress Page/Post
Here’s how you can disable comments on any WordPress blog post or page. So, look at following:
Open the page or post editor in your WordPress admin panel and look for the Screen Options at the top of the screen. Now check Discussion.
Now, scroll down the page and you will find the Discussion widget just after the text editor. Here, make sure that comments are not allowed. To disable comments, you’ve to keep unchecked Allow Comments option.
That’s all, it will disable comments of this individual post. So, for any post of page you don’t wanna receive comments or user responses, you can keep the Allow Comments option unchecked as shown above.
In case, if you’ve hundreds of posts or pages and wanna disable comments for them all, then the above method might be little difficult because it will take too much time to edit all the pages and posts. So, in that case you can use a WordPress plugin called No Page Comments. This plugin enables you to disable comments on the new pages or posts as well as from all posts and pages.
If you use this plugin and disable all the comments, how can you enable comments for any individual post or page? Its very simple, just use the WordPress inbuilt feature to allow comments, I mentioned first.
