August 25, 2019


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 and 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.
