Turn WordPress into a non-blogging CMS platform. Disable Blogging is a plugin that disables all blog related functionalities on the front-end and back-end. This includes posts, comments, feeds, and so much more. As a result, you will have a cleaner and simpler WordPress platform to be used for static websites.

Disable all posting & comments functions

At its core level, all posting and comment related functionalities are disabled – but that’s not all. Disable Blogging includes 20+ extra features to disable and hide cumbersome functions that run on WordPress including:


This plugin does not delete any data on WordPress. It hides and disables those features that are blog related. If you have any existing, posts, comments, categories, and tags on your website: they must be manually deleted. That’s if you do not want to keep any of the blog information. All plugin features are available in the plugin’s settings (Settings > Blogging).

Links to previous posts will still be accessible and previous comments will be hidden from view.
