WordPress comes with a stable comment management system of its own. All WordPress themes are equipped with a comment layout template. However, it is up to you to engage users on your website and encourage them to join conversations.
All comments on a WordPress website are displayed on the Comments page in your WordPress Admin area. However, the system offers many default options that you can easily configure from the Settings → Discussion page.
If you want to have a clear understanding of the default comment system provided by WordPress, this article explains how to:
- change the settings and rules for your comment section (e.g., who can comment on your website)
- enable/disable comments for specific pages or posts;
- manage comments (e.g., approve, mark as spam, delete).
If you struggle with generating engagement on your website or just want to start off on the right foot, read our in-depth article that guides you on how to encourage conversations and get people to move from a passive reader to an active contributor.
