Need help removing comment forms from two pages

  1. There are two pages-"About Birthing 411" & "Resources"- on my site themed twenty ten that I cannot remove the comment forms from. I just purchased the custom design option if that will be helpful. Additionally, I can't get the comment form to show up on the actual "blog" page.Thank you you help is greatly appreciated.

    The blog I need help with is birthing411.com.

  2. Note that unless you use P2, a twitter-like theme, comments are collapsed on the front page of your blog where our posts are "showcased". By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress and we cannot change this. The reason for this structure is that in a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.

    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 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. Ok, so what CAN I do in order for the comment form to NOT be displayed? I have already "disabled" the comments but the "Leave Reply" box is still present. I don't want the form to be displayed at all. If I switch themes can I remove these? Or if I switch hosting to Go Daddy will I have more options to make the theme look like an actual website, not a blog? Thanks!
