How do I remove the "leave a reply" box from my About page?

    I am trying to get the “leave a reply” box off of my About page. The instructions for enable/disable comments says to click on the title of the page, go to the discussion module on the edit screen and uncheck the options “allow comments” and “allow tractbacks and pingbacks on this page.” But when I go to the screen options to get to the discussion module, I am not finding those options. How do I get to them????

    STEP 1
    Go here first >(top right hand corner Admin page) screen options
    include these Modules
    Post – Likes and Shares, Format, Categories, Tags, Excerpt, Send Trackbacks, Discussion, Comments, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper
    Page – Likes and Shares, Page Attributes, Featured Image, Discussion, Comments, Page Revisions, Slug, Author, Revisions, Writing Helper

    STEP 2
    Edit your About page.
    Scroll down and disable comments and pingbacks.
    click “update”


    Wow! Timethief: thank you SO much. I was playing with this for two hours (speaking of time being stolen), back and forth, trying to figure it out. Ultimately, I think my problem was something idiotically simple: I never scrolled down far enough to see what occurred when I checked the Discussion box. Duh on me! (In my small defense, I’m quite new to blogging and to wordpress–haven’t even set up my gravatar yet.) Again, many thanks!
