Disabling comments for individual pages

  1. Hey,

    I've been looking through the forum and I found an answer to my question here

    panaghiotisadam: @peewiglet: Changing the Discussion Setting affects all posts published after the change, not already published ones. To override the setting for a single post, you deactivate the Allow Comments and Allow Pings options in the Discussion module of the post editor, or in Quick Edit (Posts>Edit > hover under post title).

    I don't know where to find the Discussion module of the post editor, however. Only Discussion section found under the Settings menu.

    I'm looking to disable comments on pages such as "Contact Me" and things like that. It's not necessary to do it, but I just thought I'd ask anyways in case there's a way.

    Thanks very much in advance!

    The blog I need help with is thingsiwanttoknow.com.

  2. All WordPress blogs by default have comments open on all Pages and Posts as in evidenced own your own blog. You can enable and disable comments on free hosted WordPress.com blogs on this page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.

    You can override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any individual post or page.

    Any existing posts or pages will need to have comments disabled manually via editing. You can use the bulk edit feature in the all posts and all pages screen to make that quicker.

    Note: By default, new blogs on WordPress.com will have the Discussion hidden. You can reveal it by clicking on Screen Options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ on the top right corner of your Admin page, and checking the box that says Discussion so the module is included. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules
