Disable Comments

    @planeo8

    In an ongoing effort to fight spam, I want to disable all comments via the WordPress Admin Dashboard…Settings/Discussion…(uncheck allow notifications and uncheck allow people to post comments)

    If I do this, will bbPress New Topic or Replies be impacted? Will users still be able to submit new topics or reply to existing omes?

    I am running WP 4.9.7 and bbPress 2.5.14 with bbPress Moderation 1.8.3

    Thanks.

    disallowing comments does not affect topics and replies – it is how I set my websites

    Thank you, Robin W.

    I am also thinking about implementing reCaptcha for the New Topic and Reply forms. Is that actually necessary?

    I’ve never had an issue with automatic spam, so I would not bother – you can always implement it later if needed.
