Disabling comments for specific posts

I’m using Ghost’s default comments system and I’m wondering if there’s a way to disable comments but only for specific posts or even posts in specific tags. If it’s not possible via Ghost’s default settings, is there a way to incorporate such functionality in a custom theme?

Thanks in advance!

It would be easy to either make a custom post template that excludes the comments helper, or to wrap some logic around the helper that doesn’t load it when a certain tag is present. But yeah, you’d need to edit the theme. I guess you could go JavaScript with code injection to remove the comments…

Your suggestion led me to wrap comments with something like this {{^has tag="tag_i_want_to_exclude"}}. Not sure if it’s the best solution but it seems to be working. :crossed_fingers:

Thank you!
