How to Remove Comments From Blog Posts

There are several ways to disable comments on your WordPress site: site-wide, by post type, or post by post.

Site Wide

To disable comments on your entire site you can use the Disable Comments plugin to get the job done.

By Post Type

To disable comments based on the post type (posts, custom, etc), we recommend the following plugin:  No Page Comment.

Post by Post

To disable comments on a single post, navigate to the post edit screen within the admin and uncheck the Allow Comments setting in the Discussion meta box as shown in the screenshot below. Doing this will also hide the comment icon in the post meta on archive pages.  For step-by-step continue with the screenshots below.
