Getting rid of comment form on static home page

    Member I am using the theme Chateau. There is a comment form on the static front page that I do not want. I will only want comments on the blog page.

    In the past I have been able to go to screen options, show comments and turn it off. This theme does not have that capability. Am I missing something or do I have to go find a new theme? Too bad, as I like this one.

    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
    We can also overide the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page.

    When I have had difficulty closing comments I found that I had to uncheck the box for “sharing” at the bottom of the page. Then the comment boxes disappeared. Would you like to try that?


    I disabled sharing and I changed discussion settings, with no luck. However I figured it out! I had disabled discussion in the screen options on the top of the page. Once I enabled it, the Allow Comments tick box appears on the bottom of the page. I unticked it and voila! Comment box gone!

    Thanks for your help! Sometimes just talking a problem through makes the solution easy to figure out.

    @timethief .. Thanks for this. I’ve been trying to work it out for ages.
    @cowichansweaters .. I had trouble figuring it out too but then I did what you said in your last comment and it worked .. Brilliant.
