In this article, we will explain how to turn on/off (show/hide) the comment feature on Shopify's blog.
Shopify comes standard with a blog feature that allows you to post product-related and content marketing articles on the Shopify site. However, some themes have a comment area at the bottom of the blog post.
If the comment area of the blog post appears, it will look a bit like a blog template.
I thought it would be better to hide it this time.
But it was hard to figure out how to hide the comments on the Shopify blog posts, so I decided to put it all together this time!
How to hide comments on blog posts
First, go to the Blog Posts screen of the Shopify administration page. This will take you to a page with a list of blog posts. Then click on "Manage Blogs".
This will bring up a list of blogs.
If you are not sure, you can do the same process for all blogs.
In the case of my Shopify blog, both of the above are called blogs, so I will change the first one that applies. Click on the appropriate blog.
You will see a screen like the one below, so go to "Comments" and do the operation.
If you want to disable comments, check the first box "Comments are disabled.
If you want to display comments, select "Comments are allowed and awaiting administrator's goods. Then, when a comment comes in, it will not be reflected immediately, but will appear in the blog post after approval by the administrator.
Please note that if you select the "Auto publish" option at the bottom of the page, spam comments will be automatically displayed. (I tried to accept comments for a while and found that I received spam comments at a high rate.)
You can now show or hide comments on your Shopify blog posts. The setting itself is easy to do, but it was quite difficult to find out where to do it, so I wrote this article for your records.
How to show/hide [Shopify] blog comments Summary
Readability is one of the most important aspects of writing a blog post on Shopify. I felt it unnecessary to have the comment box at the end of a blog post because it makes the distance to the footer longer and makes the comment box look like it is floating without any design adjustments.
I am honored to receive comments, but I also received a high percentage of spam comments, so I decided to take the plunge and hide the comments themselves.
It has been a while since I removed the comments on my blog posts, but I feel that there is no particular inconvenience since there is a contact form and social networking service if there is anything I need to know.
