Would be great if you could add the option to close comments and show existing.
I think he means - if you have a Hub with a Comments capsule which has a number of comments in it. Then you decide you want to close the Hub to comments.
If you delete the Comments capsule, you will lose all your existing comments. So is there another way to prevent people posting comments without losing your existing ones?
I haven't tried it so I don't know - I allow comments on all my Hubs.
I like this idea lots. I suggested it a few weeks ago.
Yes thats what I mean.
I have a hub where the comments section has gotten so out of control (flaming etc)that I would just prefer to have it closed.
My other options are to delete the comments capsule...i'll lose all the previous comments which wouldn't be good at all. I would never publish a hub without including a comments capsule.
Call me dense, but why would you want to close a hub to further comments? How discouraging to new hubbers that join weeks or months later! Comments by new hubbers can revive a "dead" hub.
I have hubs where the same question is asked by every new person who leaves a comment. I have more unregistered comments than registered, and those people just don't read the other comments and answers that are above theirs. In my case, I'm just tired of answering the same question over an over again. I'd like to leave the previous comments, and not allow any others.
I was suggested to just deleted repeated questions, but then to me that is rude bc I feel I've disregarded and ignored someone. By not allowing comments, it will force people to read.
I must admit I used to wonder why anyone would publish a Hub and not allow comments. However, I understand now that occasionally, a Hub will start attracting a lot of hate mail, spammers, or perhaps even a stalker.
In that situation, I can understand a Hubber wanting to block any further comments but preserve the relevant comments already made.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...

In the past few days, I've been getting racist comments left by "visitors" - people who leave comments but aren't members of HP. For the most part, these remarks are combined with anti-police remarks and being left on my law enforcement and crime hubs; however, one or two have been left...

Several followers have let me know via email and otherwise, that they are unable to post a comment on my new hub! One even said that I could copy and paste her comment via email into my hub, which I tried and all it does is take me back to the top of my hub. Please HP Team help me...

One of my hubs got a comment which seemed like a sales pitch - it's a link to a specific product. Should I allow it? Thanks.

I have been getting one or two questions every day in my email through the new "contact the author" feature. The questions have been very important; almost always they are questions/details that can help other readers.Since these readers are sending emails instead of leaving the...
