    Hello There

    I love this plug there is only one problem .

    How can i use it in a multi site setup.

    I would love to close all comments in a nutshell want to turn of the wordpress comments system completely.

    If you can do this for our Multi Site owners you will be the rock start of a life time.

    Thank you Kindly

    Also interested in this. It can prevent hack attacks uploaded in comments.

    I've just released version 0.7 of the plugin, which can be used to disable comments network-wide. The settings interface is mostly the same - except that when it is network activated, you can only access the settings from the Network Admin (look under the "Settings" menu).

    Let me know if there are any issues. I don't use multisite that much myself, so I could have missed something.

    Is it possible to disable comments on a site by site basis? I checked out the plugin, but that doesn't seem to be a feature. I think that would be handy!

    Thanks.

    Arun,

    It's possible in the sense that you can install the plugin on a network, and then activate it individually on whichever sites you want to disable comments on (i.e., at Site Administrator level).

    But if you mean having an option for the Network Administrator to disable comments on selected sites, then no. If the plugin is network activated then the settings apply globally to all sites.

    I can see why this might be useful but will have to think about how best to implement it without too much overhead. I'll see what I can do.

    Yeah, I get it in that sense, which is quite good enough for many networks actually! But I was looking for a way for just the network admin to do that.

    I guess one easier way would be to have a setting by which it can be disabled on all sites by default and ONLY the network admin can access the menu on a sub-site level, so that when he needs to enable comments for a user, he can just go into the sub-site's settings and enable it.

    Another way I can think of is to keep a comma separated list of blog id's that need to be excluded (or included or both) and exclude just those blogs. I see a line that pulls in the blog ids.

    2 cents. Thanks!
