Change who can comment in WordPress

Updated May 4th, 2021 at 15:29 BST

Within WordPress, you can specify who can comment on your posts and pages. Doing so can help prevent comment spam.

Log in to the WordPress admin dashboard. Go to Settings > Discussion

Locate the Other comment settings section

Check or uncheck the box next to the line that says:

               Comment author must fill out name and email
               Users must be registered and logged in to comment

Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click Save Changes.
