Getting rid of comment form on static home page

  1. cowichansweaters.wordpress.com I am using the theme Chateau. There is a comment form on the static front page that I do not want. I will only want comments on the blog page.

    In the past I have been able to go to screen options, show comments and turn it off. This theme does not have that capability. Am I missing something or do I have to go find a new theme? Too bad, as I like this one.

  3. This page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
    We can also overide the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page.

    When I have had difficulty closing comments I found that I had to uncheck the box for "sharing" at the bottom of the page. Then the comment boxes disappeared. Would you like to try that?

  4. I disabled sharing and I changed discussion settings, with no luck. However I figured it out! I had disabled discussion in the screen options on the top of the page. Once I enabled it, the Allow Comments tick box appears on the bottom of the page. I unticked it and voila! Comment box gone!

    Thanks for your help! Sometimes just talking a problem through makes the solution easy to figure out.
