By default, whenever you create a new post or page, WordPress comment is enabled. In some scenario, this might not be what you want and it can be annoying to realize you forgot to uncheck the “enable comment” after creating a lot of posts and pages. Nonetheless, we will show you exactly how to easily remove comments from pages in WordPress. Turning off comment in WordPress pages is quite easy than most people think.
Creating sites that don’t look anywhere close to looking like a blog is simple in WordPress. It’s possible for you to use pages to create all of your content, create custom post types, and have another page for blog posts. This means there is a high likelihood that you might want to activate comment on your blog posts, but not on your pages.
The first thing you should do is to install and activate the “No Page Comment plugin” to turn off comments on pages. After activation, go to “Settings” >> “No Page Comment” to configure the plugin.
In case you want to disable comments on new pages, check the “comments and trackbacks” checkbox which is close to “Pages” and then click “Update Settings” button.
To disable comments on all existing pages, click the “Disable All Comment” and “Disable All Trackbacks” buttons which are close to “Pages” under “Modify All Current” section.
That is all! Comments are now disabled on all WordPress pages.
However, you should always remember that if you have comment disabled on all your pages, you can always enable them whenever you want. To achieve this you have to edit the page whose comments you want enabled.
Go to “Post Editor Screen.” On the upper right corner of the screen, click on the screen options button. A fly drop menu will be opened and from there you need to check the box close to “Discussion”.
Scroll down once you’ve checked the “Discussion” box and you will see a “Discussion Meta Box” on the “Post Editor Screen”. This Meta Box lets you enable or disable comments on one page.
Check the “Allow Comments” box to have the comments enabled on this page. After taking this step, the comment form will start appearing on updated or published page.
