How to disable comments in Wordpress

Disabling comments on Wordpress is a good way to prevent spam. You could use something like Akismet to help manage spam, but if you want to just turn off comments altogether, follow these steps.

Step 1: Go to your admin settings

Login as an administrator and visit the admin page.

Step 2: Click "Settings"

In the left sidebar, click the menu item that says "Settings"

Step 3: Click "Discussion"

Again in the left menu, under "settings", click on "Discussion".

Step 4: Uncheck the box that says "Allow people to submit comments on new posts"

On the Discussion Settings page, look for the section that says "Default post settings". Within that section, look for the checkbox with the label that reads "Allow people to submit comments on new posts". Uncheck that box.
