To disable comments in WordPress, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your WordPress admin dashboard.
  2. Navigate to “Settings” and click on “Discussion.”
  3. On the Discussion Settings page, you will see various options related to comments.
  4. Under the “Default article settings” section, uncheck the box that says “Allow people to post comments on new articles.”
  5. Scroll down to the “Other comment settings” section and make sure the “Allow comments” option is unchecked.
  6. Optionally, you can also uncheck other options like “Comment must be manually approved” or “Comment author must have a previously approved comment” if you want to disable comment moderation as well.
  7. Click the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page to save your settings.

By following these steps, you have successfully disabled comments on your WordPress website. Please note that these settings will apply to all future articles/posts. If you want to disable comments on existing articles, you may need to modify the settings for individual posts or use a bulk editing option if available.
