Disable comments on individual images in gallery

    I know there is a way to disable comments on all posts by going through the settings. The problem is that even with those disabled, when I have an image gallery (I like Jetpack), I still noticed dozens of spam comments that I have to waste time going back and marking as spam.

    There has to be a way to disable comments and even better, have them off by default.

    Really the themes shouldn't be allowing for comments on images, by removing the comment code entirely from that template.

    I'm having the problem on many blogs I manage and it's a pest.
    Please give us complete control over commenting: let us be able to dis/able comments on images and attachments too.
    Let there be a (recoverable) option to COMPLETELY disable comments on a blog.

  4. It's really annoying to get this big amount of comments and don't be able to control it completely!

    Hello, can you confirm that being able to comment on images depends on the theme and not wordpress ?

    Thank you.

    Yes I can confirm that. You can disable comments on images in a plugin or theme.

    Hello and thank you, but it's weird that there is still no option in WP to bulk disable comments on already uploaded attachments.

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-comments/ would solve your particular issue I believe
