Comments are the way your visitors can add feedback to your posts. When you enable comments in your post, visitors can see the Leave a Reply form at the bottom of your post.
By default after a visitor has submitted a comment it will be ‘on hold’ for approval – a notification will be sent to the administrators email to complete this. The comment will be displayed below the post after this approval. This helps you to moderate what to display in your blog and avoid unwanted spam comments being displayed.
Enable/Disable Comment in your Posts
You can enable or disable comments for each post. First locate the post you want to edit and open in Edit Mode.
Then, locate the Discussion module at the bottom of the Edit Post screen:
- To prevent any kind of discussion/comments, uncheck both boxes.
- To disable comments unckeck the Allow comments option.
- To disable trackback and pingbacks for your post uncheck the second option. (Trackback and Pingbacks are manual and automatic ways to communicate between bloggers)
Make sure to Update your post after you make these changes.
Missing Discussion Module
If you can’t see the Discussion Module in your edit screen it may be because it is hidden. To reveal it click on Screen Options on the top right of the page, and then check the box that says Discussion.
