How do I disable comments for a certain post (not remove them). (2 posts)

    I host many giveaways on my blog. After the giveaway is completed, I would like to prohibit any additional comments from the giveaway post (reducing spam significantly and saving me time filtering Akismet). I do not want the comments from my giveaway to dissapear - which happens when I try it right now, nor do I want to disable comments for my entire blog. I just want to end comments for my giveaway posts once the giveaway has completed. I should warn that I'm not very PHP savvy, but I have taken the time to look for a plugin that may be able to do this for me, or give me the option, to no avail.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    Have you tried editing the post and uncheck the allow comments option then save? That should do it.
