Important note: Use this plugin if you don’t want comments at all on your site (or on certain post types). Don’t use it if you want to selectively disable comments on individual posts – WordPress lets you do that anyway. If you don’t know how to disable comments on individual posts, there are instructions in the FAQ.
If you come across any bugs or have suggestions, please use the plugin support forum. I can’t fix it if I don’t know it’s broken! Please check the FAQ for common issues.

A must-use version of the plugin is also available.

falseto prevent the plugin from replacing the theme’s comment template with an empty one.
DISABLE_COMMENTS_ALLOW_DISCUSSION_SETTINGSand set it to
trueto prevent the plugin from hiding the Discussion settings page.
These definitions can be made either in your main
wp-config.php or in your theme’s
