A ui switch that REALLY turns comments off

    I thinks there should be more options to turn off comments - e.g. ui complete control - e.g. turning off comments on pictures and attachments. Turning it off on pages and posts is not enough.

    +1 This would be a nice feature.

    Don't understand why this isn't a default function in WordPress already. For so long comment spam has been a big issue.

    To disable comments, I think one of the best things to do is to install "no page comment" plugin..

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/no-page-comment/

    I think it's a great tool becuase it can also trackback all the posts in your blogs. You can also choose to enable comments to any of your posts.

    I think spams has been a big deal for a long time already because spammers are very smart and they always find a way to go through anti-spam tools.

    I also think comments are one of the most important aspects in our blogs. Establishing a good relationship with your readers can be a big help in your blog. There are so many anti-spam plug-ins out there and they have different ways on fighting spams, but you really have to pay attention to what you really need.

    I would be great to have this feature. On some sites I actually delete the comments.php file just to be sure not to get any spam comments.

    I usually turn the box off, so spam is not a problem on my sites.

  7. Just turning of commenting in WordPress settings won't help as the basic commenting functionally of WordPress is always enabled and globally accessible.

    I configured my web server so that only legitimate users can comment:

    I didn't get a spam comment in years which makes me very happy.

    No brainer, have installed https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-comments/ over 100 times. WP is now a CMS, comments should be easily disabled site wide.
