Comments are written reactions that readers can add to your pages or posts. Leaving a comment on a page or post is an easy way for your visitors to communicate with you and other readers.

Comments usually appear on your site right after the page or post content, along with the commenter’s name, the date, and time they left the comment.

Posts & pages can accept comments, if you choose to allow them. However, it’s up to you to engage users on your website and encourage them to leave comments. Comments are enabled by default on posts and disabled on pages.

We will take you through the steps to enable/disable comments on post or page you already published using by Quick Edit or Bulk Edit

Enable/disable comments using Quick Edit

  1. Go to Posts > All Posts (or Pages > All Pages)
  2. Locate the post or page you want to enable/disable comments on
  3. Hover over it’s title to bring up the action menu and click on Quick Edit.
  4. Check or uncheck ‘Allow Comments’ then click on Update. 

Enable/disable comments using Bulk Edit

Bulk edit allows you to modify multiple posts or pages at the same time as follows:

  1. Go to Posts > All Posts (or Pages > All Pages)
  2. Select the posts or pages you want to edit
  3. Select Edit in the bulk actions drop down menu.
  4. Click Apply button.
  5. Disable comments on the posts by selecting ‘Do not allow‘ from the Comments dropdown menu.
