When it comes to managing comments in WordPress, the only option at a site level is a big on/off switch which, of course, only works for new posts and pages.
More likely you want more granular control than that. Perhaps you want to switch off comments for pages or but leave them on for standard posts. Or maybe, you’ve spent a great deal of time and effort seeding your site with content only to discover that you forgot to turn off comments and now you’re faced with going through each page and switching them off manually.
In this week’s Weekend Project, we’ll look at how, with minimal effort, you can take control over comments not just for future content but also for existing content.
