Many WordPress bloggers like to see comments on their posts. Comments let people voice their opinions about your content, and lots of commenting suggests a blog is successful in garnering readers’ attention.
But let’s face it: sometimes, you don’t want others to comment on your writing– at least, not on your own website.
Perhaps you do not want your blog to be open for discussion.
Or perhaps you want to stop a debate on a controversial post you published. Or maybe you are too busy to respond to questions or weed out spam. Whatever your reason, WordPress gives you the power to enforce silence on your site as far as post commenting goes.
