Turn Off Comments on Existing Posts

If you don’t want comments on your posts, turn off the ability for people to make them. You can do this on individual posts but this is where the wonderful Quick Edit function shines again.

(If you do want comments on your Posts – follow the same steps but turn the comments on)

Go to All Posts and choose Bulk Actions

How many posts do you have? It depends on how your computer is set, this site has 12 pages of posts, so I’d have to repeat all that 12 times.
