WP-eCommerce Tip: Hide Comments on Single Product Pages

If you have a store with hundreds of products it can be a little annoying to have to turn off comments on every product page.  But, you can add a few lines of code to a file in your mu-plugins directory, or your theme’s functions.php file.

This will turn off comments on your single product pages.

 * Filter whether the current post is open for comments.
 * @param bool        $open    Whether the current post is open for comments.
 * @param int|WP_Post $post_id The post ID or WP_Post object.
function wpec_no_single_product_page_comments( $open, $post_id ) {
   if ( $open && is_singular() ) {
      $post_type = get_post_type( $post_id );
      if ( 'wpsc-product' == $post_type ) {
         $open = false;

   return $open;

add_filter( 'comments_open', 'wpec_no_single_product_page_comments', 10, 2 );
