Very Basic Comment Query

  1. Hi Guys,

    This is a very basic query regarding my page.

    I want to remove the "leave reply" box on my homepage but I am struggling to do so. I want to keep reply's on my posts only.

    Any help please!?

    Thanks, Tom.

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

  2. Edit the page and on the right-hand side, you'll see a place to disable comments.

  3. Hi, I looked for a place to disable comments on the right-hand side of the page to edit, am not finding it. help?

  4. Hi All!!

    Ok, so I found out how to do this before, Thanks raincoaster what you have said is right also!

    Basically if you look in the post that you want to turn the comment off in press "screen options" at the top right hand side of the dashboard tick the "discussion" box and then you will be able to shut off individual comments for a page or post.

    If you want to completely turn off comments then go to the left hand side menu in the dashboard hover over "Settings" the click "Discussions" in here you have a massive list of tick boxes where you can remove comments and edit responses. Really useful!

    Comments on all pages and posts on every WordPress blog are enabled by default. 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

    Depending on the theme we use when we close comments a phrase like “comments closed” or a similar phrase may appear and if so, it can only be removed by CSS editing after purchasing a custom design upgrade.
