Mystique- removing comments

  1. I am not very versed at WP and chose Mystique because I love the options and customization and feel of the page. However since it is being used as a website and not so much a blog site, I would like to have the comments box removed from the pages except where I may want a forum to be used. Does anyone know how to remove it? It may be simple and I may be overlooking it? Thanks.

  2. This is not a theme dependent issue. This is the page for setting up defaults for commenting > http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/
    This is the page with instructions for closing comments on individual pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/enable-disable-comments/
    Do note that closing comments with result in the display of a phrase such as "comments closed" or the like and it cannot be removed. It can be "hidden" by purchasing an annually renewable CSS upgrade and doing the work to change it your self. > http://en.support.wordpress.com/custom-css/

    What’s critical is to understand when creating a website structure is the following:
    1. The differences between pages and posts > http://en.support.wordpress.com/post-vs-page/

    2. There is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page. When we publish a post it automatically appears on the running page for posts and also on the Categories pages and Archives pages.

    3. We organize our posts by assigning Categories to them. Although there is only one dynamic page in a blog for posts and we cannot post to more than that one page, we can create the appearance we have done so by creating a custom menu. In that custom menu you will be displaying Categories in tabs along the horizontal navigation to achieve what you want.

    These are the how-to instructions:

    1. You create a custom menu. http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/

    2. You add the Categories you want to display and arrange them in the order you want.

    3. Then you add and drop and drag the sub-categories below the appropriate Categories, and when you have everything arranged in the menu that you want you save the menu.

    4. Go to the “theme location” module at upper left on the menu page. Select your custom menu name from the pull-down labeled “primary location.” Click the save button in that module.

    Note: If you wish you can also include pages and sub-pages of your own choice and custom links in your custom menu as well.
