Support » Fixing WordPress » Can’t disable comments, change default category

  • Resolved shimon


    I cannot disable comments through options–> discussions. Also, I cannot delete or change my default category. I don’t see an option for it anywhere. I’m not sure if this is the cause but I think it started after I deleted or edited a file. And I don’t remember which file :-(.

    Please help! And thank you in advance!

  • Hello

    To disable comments completely, you can remove the call to the comments.php file from the single.php file. (is this what you want?)

    Also under options >> discussions the 3rd checkbox says: Allow people to post comments on the article, uncheck it. 🙂

    You cannot delete the default category, to change the default category, look under options >> writing, then look for “Default post category:” it is the 3rd option.

    Hope this helps. 🙂

    I was able to fix the categories. Thank you!

    However, even though I uncheck comments in options–>discussion and uncheck it on the post write page, there is still the “write a comment” thing. Feh! I could take out the call to comments.php in the loop.php and single.php unless anyone knows why I’m having this problem. I just want to know if there’s something wrong with my installation or theme or what?
