Disable comments on blog?

Hi, is it possible to disable comments from the blog? This is a basic option we expected to find under blog settings.

Thanks!

Don’t think that feature exists.

Do you think it is interesting for everybody? Can we insert an enhacement in github?

Sure!

While this feature is still pending, there is a simple workaround in the meantime: add this to your website theme CSS:

.blog-comments {
  display: none;
}

Thnx a lot…recently spam increased a lot

Thank you @lasalesi!

frappe@ubuntu:~/frappe-bench$ find . -name '*.css' | xargs grep blog-comments
./apps/frappe/frappe/public/css/website.css:.blog-comments {
./sites/assets/css/frappe-web.css:.blog-comments {

You’re welcome :wink: as far as I know you only need to change the first and the run bench build to update the latter occurrence… Note that changing this will force you into a branch; consider setting this property either from a website script or another way configurable… We did not send in a PR because this is only a hotfix that completely disables this feature…

I have just noted that this was broken in V12. This is a new workaround, based on the Website > Website Script, which is configurable and achieves the same:

<!-- hide blog comments -->
var style = document.createElement('style');
style.type = 'text/css';
style.innerHTML = '.blog-comments { display: none }';
document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(style);
