Chorus provides the option to enable or disable comments. In the Finalize screen, you can toggle on the option Enable comments and toggle it off. This default toggle setting is tied to your community's settings for comments.
Coupled: If you open or close the comments, the story will update automatically - no need to publish changes.
Headless: Your organization has the option to set this up if you’re using commenting features on your site.
Closing comments on stories using Coral
Some communities use comments powered by Coral, which works a little differently. If your community is using Coral, you can close the comments on a per story basis:
- Publish the story.
- Go to the comments on the published article while logged in as a moderator.
- Select the Configure tab at the top of the comments, and scroll to the bottom.
- Select Close stream.
You can re-open comments on that page at any time by selecting that button again.
