    Hello! This FAQ is not applicable to the pages I have already created:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/enable-disable-comments/

    There is no “Discussion” box on the edit page of any of my existing pages. I’m assuming the FAQ is out of date. Please let me know how I can make this update without disabling comments for the entire site. Thank you!!

    The blog I need help with is lovebombnyc.com.

    To disable comments on already published pages (not posts), you go to Pages > All Pages, click the little square to select all the pages, select “Edit” from the Bulk Actions pulldown, click Apply, select “Do not allow” from the Comments pulldown, click Update. Same thing for already published posts, in Posts > All Posts.

    And the FAQ is applicable and up to date. Quoting:

    Missing Discussion Module

    The edit screen on your blog is highly customizable. You can move modules around, minimize them, or hide them completely, so this module might not always be in the same place on every blog.

    By default, new blogs on WordPress.com will have the Discussion module hidden. You can reveal it by clicking on Screen Options on the top right, and checking the box that says Discussion.

    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
