At this point you've enabled the blog module and created your first blog entry. By default, commenting (allowing others to post comments on your blog post) is set to Open. Open commenting means anyone with an account that has the permissions set to Post comments will be able to comment.

At times, you may want to turn commenting off. You can either turn commenting off for all blog posts, or you can disable commenting on individual blog entries. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the steps for turning commenting off for specific blog posts.

To turn of Commenting for a blog entry in Drupal 7:

  1. Log into the Drupal Dashboard
  2. Go to Find content in the upper left corner

  5. Select the radio button labeled Closed.
  6. drupal_comment_3

  7. Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
