How To Disable Comments In WordPress-with and Without a Plugin

Hey everyone. In this quick video
I just wanted to show you how you could get rid of the section in a WordPress website
so if you see a comment section leave a comment section,
and you don’t want to see that
I’m gonna show you how to get rid of it
and I’ll show you how to get rid of it in a post or a page
Or really any page on WordPress in this case.
It’s under a post and the reason why I want to get rid of it is because I already created this
Facebook comment section, so this is a different plug-in face become a plug-in that lets people
Leave comments using their Facebook profile, so I definitely don’t want to see a second one down here
So let me go ahead and edit this post just to show you how you turn it off in a single post and I’ll show
You how to turn it off for your entire website if you just want to get rid of that section
So on any given post like this one up here
You should see screen option, and if you click that right here if you click discussion
You’ll give you an option on the very bottom of the page
To allow comments and to allow trackback I could just turn off allow comments
And then I could press update so that was just up here
And it was under the discussion tab so now if I preview this page
And I scroll to the bottom the comments section is gone on the bottom of the page now
I shouldn’t be able to see that comment section
But if I go to a different post I will probably have
The same issue so if I come to the bottom of the page I have leave a comment so I will have to do this
For every single one, but a faster way is to just go to your post section, so I’m gonna come over here
And I’m just gonna click post so I could see all my posts
and then I could just click this title so I could see and select every single post here and go to edit and
Press apply here, and then it’s gonna
Give me options to turn off my comments for the entire website, so I could just say do not allow and I could press update
And since I have a second page here
I could go to the second page and I could do the same thing I could select all edits
apply and
Turn comments off do not allow an update so now in every single post I have so far
That’s gonna turn off the comment next thing we want to do is we want to go to setting’ and we want to go to
Discussion because we want to turn this off for all feature comments so the default article setting right here
It says a lot of people to comment
On a new article we want to turn that off so if you turn that off
We could come down here
Press save so now we’re not gonna see the comment section in the new posts that are posted on the website
And if you want to take this even further there is a plug-in so I’m gonna go to plugins add new that says disable comments
So I’ll look for disable comments
This is a very popular plug-in it has over a million active installs
So if you go ahead and install this this just disables all the comments across your website so on pages on posts on the homepage
You won’t have the comment section so once you get that installed all you have to do is go to the settings under
Disable comments go to setting and you could say everywhere disable all comments in your WordPress
Or you could do by certain pages
So if you still want your post to show comments and turn to other pages and media off
But in this case disable is what I want to do across the entire website
And that’s it so now on any given post I shouldn’t be able to see any
comment section so if I click on a post here
And I go over here there. We go you don’t have a comment section anywhere
We just have the Facebook comments that I’ve included with a different plugin. I hope this video was helpful
