Stopping all comments and replies

  1. Hi

    My site is not a blog, therefore I don't need or want the comment/reply boxes at the foot of each page.

    I've tried following the instruction that tells me to go to Settings/Discussion and remove the comment facility but it hasn't worked (see my example of how comments can still be left at uk1watches.wordpress.com/about).

    Can someone please advise me where I am going wrong and what steps I need to take to remove all comments barring the Contact Us form on at uk1watches.wordpress.com/contact page.

    Thank you,

    Jamie.

    The blog I need help with is uk1watches.wordpress.com.

  2. that tells me to go to Settings/Discussion and remove the comment facility

    That's stops it from appearing on future posts/pages, but you have to edit each existing post/page to to remove what's already there.

  3. P.S.: It appears I had to make a New Page in order for the changes to take effect. Bad News is I have to re-write all the previous pages now but at least the problem is solved.

    Continually learning,

    jamie.

  4. Sorry Woody. I was busy trying to work out how I was going to phrase my last post that I didn't notice you'd replied to my problem.

    Thanks for trying to help,

    Jamie.

  5. a) You don't rewrite the pages, you just go to Pages > All Pages and bulk edit them to disable commenting.
    b) Do you make the watches you want to post about? If not, your blog is against the TOS.
