Blog configuration options?


Is there a way to turn off the 'Tags' field and the "Allow comments' check box in the Blog CMS?

I'm not using either on a website I'm working on. It'd be nice to be able to disable these in the config.php

I'm using Perch 2.4.9 with Blog 4.0.3

New support / forums look great by the way!

There's a privilege setting under Roles for the ability to enable comments. If you remove that privilege, the checkbox gets hidden.

For tags, I think you should be able to just remove the field from the template.

Great, I've managed to turn off comments for the client login (thanks).

I can't find any reference to the tags field in post.html. Is that where it's supposed to be?

Hmm, sorry, you're right. The tags field is fixed as it has a special function.
