  • Hello
    is it possible to disable the comment option (form) from certain pages/articles on wordpress.
    I want these pages to be static like Organization History/About us..

    Thank you so much

  • You can – I believe that those sections are in the “editor” mode under area1.php, area2.php

    Best of luck!

    Thanks brlbeagle
    excuse my ignorance in wordpress

    I looged into admin page, Apperance -> Editor (correct?)
    if I look at the files list on the right, I can’t find area1 and area.php

    Does this disable comments for the whole website or only specific categories?

    Please help
    Thank You so much

    Edit page.php in your theme and replace:

    <?php comments_template();?>


    <?php if( have_comments() || ‘open’ == $post->comment_status ) : ?>
    <?php comments_template();?>
    <?php endif;?>

    this is my page.php code, i didn’t find that line.
    thanks for ur patience.

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div class="span-24" id="contentwrap">
    	<div class="span-16">
    		<div id="content">	
    			<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    			<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    			<h2 class="title"><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    				<div class="entry">
    <?php if ( function_exists("has_post_thumbnail") && has_post_thumbnail() ) { the_post_thumbnail(array(300,225), array("class" => "alignleft post_thumbnail")); } ?>
    					<?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page &raquo;</p>'); ?>
    					<?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
    			<?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    		<?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>
    <?php get_sidebars(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Thanks I got an answer

    Settings >> Discussion >> uncheck “Allow people to post comments on new articles”

    This applies to new posts that you will publish from now on. To disallow comments from already publish posts:

    Posts >> select them all and “Edit” under bulk actions and hit apply >> choose “do not allow” next to comments and hit update posts.
