Is there a way to turn off comments on my About page?

  1. I ' m working on my About page and the "leave a comment" box is at the bottom. I don't really want anyone to comment on my about page.

    In other words I want comments open on the home page for all my posts but not on the About page or some of my other pages.

    TIA

    The blog I need help with is fitenough.wordpress.com.

  2. This page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.

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

    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

  3. Thank you very much.

    Turns out the "Discussion" module check box was not selected in the settings when using "Edit Page"

  4. That's often the case and you're welcome. :)
