Configurazione avanzata

Some of the plugin’s behavior can be modified by site administrators and plugin/theme developers through code:

  • Definisci la variabile DISABLE_COMMENTS_REMOVE_COMMENTS_TEMPLATE e impostane il valore a false per fare in modo che il plugin non sostituisca il template dei commenti del tema con uno vuoto.

  • Definisci la variabile DISABLE_COMMENTS_ALLOW_DISCUSSION_SETTINGS e impostane il valore a true per fare in modo che il plugin non nasconda la pagina delle impostazioni della Discussione.

Questi valori possono essere impostati sia nel file wp-config.php della tua installazione WordPress o nel file functions.php del tuo tema.

  • Setting Screen for Disable Comments
  • Delete Comments under Tools menu.
  • Multisite Network support


Modern Way:

  1. Go to the WordPress Dashboard “Add New Plugin” section.
  2. Search For “Disable Comments”.
  3. Install, then Activate it.
  4. Puoi accedere alle impostazioni del plugin tramite il menu “Impostazioni” nell’area di amministrazione di WordPress (questo percorso è valido sia per le installazioni singole che per quelle network multi site).

Old Way:

  1. Carica la cartella del plugin nella directory /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Attiva il plugin attraverso il menu ‘Plugin’ di WordPress
  3. Puoi accedere alle impostazioni del plugin tramite il menu “Impostazioni” nell’area di amministrazione di WordPress (questo percorso è valido sia per le installazioni singole che per quelle network multi site).


Dopo aver disabilitato i commenti per ogni articolo, sembra non accadere nulla e continuo a vedere il modulo per commentare sotto agli articoli.

Questo comportamento è dovuto al fatto che il tuo tema non controlla correttamente lo stato dei commenti del post.

You may like to point your theme’s author to this explanation of what they are doing wrong, and how to fix it.

Come posso fare per rimuovere la dicitura “I commenti sono chiusi” sotto agli articoli peri quali i commenti sono stati disabilitati?

Solitamente il plugin fa del suo meglio per nascondere questo messaggio (insieme ad ogni altro inerente i commenti).

Se ancora vedi la scritta, allora significa che il tema utilizzato sta avendo la precedenza e pertanto dovrai intervenire manualmente modificandone alcuni file in modo da rimuovere il messaggio. Solitamente ci sono due modi per fare questo: il primo è quello di eliminare o commentare le linee di codice relative nel file wp-content/your-theme/comments.php, oppure utilizzare del codice CSS all’nterno di wp-content/your-theme/style.css per nascondere il blocco di testo. In ogni caso, l’importante è che tu sappia cosa stai facendo!

Voglio disabilitare i commenti solo per alcuni articoli. Cosa devo fare?

Apri la pagina di modifica dell’articolo per il quale vuoi disabilitare i commenti. Scrolla verso il basso fino a raggiungere il box “Discussione” dove troverai le opzioni relative ai commenti. Se non vedi il box, fai clic in alto alla pagina su “impostazioni schermata” e controlla che il checkbox “Discussione” sia selezionato.

Puoi anche effettuare una modifica di massa dello stato dei commenti di più articoli dalla schermata degli articoli.

Voglio eliminare tutti i commenti dal mio database. Come posso fare?

Vai alla pagina delle impostazioni del plugin Disable Comments e utilizza lo strumento Cancella Commenti per rimuovere tutti i commenti, o seguendo specifici post type dal tuo database.

Does its job nicely, support is excellent, I reported an issue which was fixed very quickly. I do have to say I would have liked the plugin to stay more minimal, as was the case before v2.0. It looks a bit heavy for what it’s doing right now.

I set up a multisite to manage links on several domains using BetterLinks, and I wondered how to disable comments over all sites. A search found this plugin, and it works perfectly and is well-designed by the same team who develops BetterLinks. This makes me thrilled to be a WPDeveloper customer!
