How to remove the comments section from specific pages

It seems that this theme has comments sections on every page. I do not want comments on every page; just the ones I choose. How can I set this up? For example, in a "Registration" page it makes no sense to have a comments section. I also see comments section on the "Contact" page. Again, this makes no sense. How can I selectively choose which pages the comments section will appear on?

    Hiya @rickgn

    Looks like @tom.eagles was faster than me on this one :wink:

    Currently as you have already got the pages setup, you can do the below to get rid of the comments on the ones you do not want them to appear.

    Go to Pages >> All Pages

    Select all >> Bulk Actions >> Select Edit and Apply

    On the next screen Comments >> Do not allow and Update

    Once that is done, comments would be disabled on all the pages. You can then follow the same process by selecting the pages on which you want the comments to be shown and allow comments on those pages in the bulk edit and you would be good to go.

    Please advise.

    Cheers

    That is the strangest UI that I have seen for performing an action which I feel should be fairly common. I doubt I would have figured this out without your help. Your help is much appreciated. It seems to be doing what it should now. I even found other options on the same menu.

    @rickgn : Thanks :slight_smile: I am glad I could help. This is the bulk edit feature of WP and it really comes handy when you get used to it :slight_smile:

    There was a time, even I used to do that but WP is getting smarter day by day :wink:
