  • applegateian


    Hi there

    I am using Buddypress but I think this is a WordPress specific question.

    By default, comments are ‘on’ for all the posts on my site. I have multiple authors on my site, with custom user permissions. There are three different user types.

    I want my users to be able to decide if they want comments ‘on’ or ‘off’ on an individual post. Is there a plugin or a solution to allow the user to choose comments on or off when they upload a post?

    You should be able to do this using the ‘discussions’ box on the post page. If its not there, check it in the ‘screen options’ (found at the top right.



    Ok thanks @dauidus

    Problem is, I’m using a custom lightbox overlay for our users who upload posts from the front end.

    Is there a way to move discussion to be part of the ‘publish’ section – with status, visibilty, publish immediately etc?


    Screen options are not available to my authors.



    I know you can move that into into the publish box with the plugin ‘admin tweaks’. It offers a ton of other options, and seems rather bloated, but search through it all and you’ll find what I’m talking about.

    Not sure if it will solve your problem in the front-end, though.
