Support » Theme: Spacious » Turn off comments site wide

    Is there a way to turn comments off completely? I thought I had them all shut down, but bots are still able to insert comments on images when a thumbnail links to the larger file. This site is for an artist. I’ve managed to block the comments using comment moderation, but it’s a pain to deal with.

    I have other sites using Spacious and I haven’t had this trouble so far.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Hi,

    For the comment settings, can you go to the Settings > Discussion in the dashboard and change the settings. You can uncheck settings like ‘Allow people to post comments on new articles’ and ‘Comment must be manually approved’. You can also change the other available settings for comments to prevent spam.
    A workaround would be simply hiding the comment section. You can go to the Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS in the dashboard and insert the code mentioned below:

    #comments{
    	display: none;
    }

    Thanks.
