[resolved] how do I turn off all comments (4 posts)

    I'm trying to turn off all comments for one of my websites, http://www.copyvigilante.com. I'm getting way too much spam. I figured out how to turn off the comments for new posts but site visitors can still comment on old posts and I can't find where to turn off the comments completely and for the old posts. Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

  2. Easiest way is SQL

    UPDATE wp_posts SET comment_status = 'closed';

    If you want to do it manually, go to the posts screen on your WP Admin dashboard, select all the posts, and chose quick-edit. You'll be able to close the comments that way too.

    Thanks a lot. I don't know how to use SQL so I did it manually. Thanks again.
