how to remove leave a comment (x2)

    Hi, I have set up a blog and would like to know two things please.

    1. how do I remove the “leave a comment” and “leave a reply” box AND title on each page (at left and bottom of page)? I have upgraded to css and read the other comments but need a very basic, step-by-step instruction of how to do it please.
    2. how do I change the colour of the subheads/page titles on my blog (i.e. accomm/akaroa/directions etc)?

    Thanks for your help. Anna

    The blog I need help with is


    First off, go to settings > discussion and disable comments and trackbacks. That will keep the comment form from appearing on all new pages and posts you create from now on.

    All existing published posts and pages will have to have the comments turned off individually, but you can use the post bulk edit and page bulk edit features to do that on multiple posts and pages at one time.

    This will hide the “leave a comment link to the left of the page content.

    .page .entry-meta .comments {
    display: none;

    If you do not want to mess with doing the settings > discussion and the bulk edit thing, add this also to the CSS edit window to hide the comment stuff at the bottom of the pages.

    div#respond {
    display: none;

    Hi, Thanks so much. This is brilliant. Just one other quick question: I’ve password protected my site. But this brings up the word “PROTECTED:Home” on the home page (and the other protected pages). Is there any way to get rid of the word “protected”?

    Thanks again for your help.


    No there is not a way to get rid of “protected.” That is done by the wordpress core software and isn’t something that can be hidden via CSS.
