Disable WordPress Commenting System to prevent spam

Filed under: General,Security,WordPress — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 11:01 am

It is a few days that I have installed Disqus wordpress plugin and I am quite impressed by it. I am receiving no more spam/bot messages through Disqus commenting system , but still bots are able to send spam to wordpress own commenting system ! so I was looking for a solution to disable wordpress comments and I found the following link :

it provides 2 solutions to get rid of wordpress commenting system , but I prefer the neat one ! delete the whole thing ! lol
simply delete wp-comments-post.php from your wordpress root installation folder. then bots can go to hell 😉

  • Glad you found my post useful!

    Just remember to recheck for that wp+comments-post.php file every time you upgrade WordPress… it will reappear next time they make an update to it.
