Change who can comment on my WordPress site

Within your WordPress dashboard, you can specify who can comment on your posts and pages to prevent spam comments.

  1. Sign in to WordPress.
  2. On the left-side menu, select Settings and then Discussion.
  3. In the Other comment settings section, select or unselect the box next to the following options to enable or disable them:
    • Comment author must fill out name and email.
    • Users must be registered and logged in to comment.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save Changes.

When enabled, these options will prevent spambots and unregistered users from leaving random comments on your site.
