Hi Team,

Did some digging around online and haven't found anything on this.

I have some modern page templates saved with the comments section disabled. When I use the template to create a new page, the comments automatically turn on when the page auto-saves. Is there any way around this so that users don't have to remember to turn comments off for these particular templates?

 

Thanks so much!

I don't think this is a bug, just by design...the team that designed the pages templates feature didn't include the option to disable comments on pages created based on a template
