01. Enable/Disable Comments on Individual Posts/Pages

In this section, I will guide you on how to enable/disable comments on individuals posts/pages.

  • Open the blog post or page on Blogger HTML Post Editor for which you want to enable or disable the comments. By default comments are enabled for every post and page.
  • Expand the “Options” tab from the “Post settings“.
  • It gives you three options (1) Allow (2) Do not allow, show existing. This option will not allow readers to post new comments, but will allow them to see old/previous comments. If a reader will try to add new comment it will display, New comments have been disabled for this post by a blog administrator. (3) Do not allow, hide existing. This option will not allow readers to post new comments and will hide old/previous comments as well.
  • Choose your desired option and check whether settings are applied or not.
Expand the "Options" tab from the "Post settings".
