Remove "Leave a Comment" text and box

    I was able to remove the comments function from my new “Adventure Journal” theme site, but for some reason the text and broken link “Leave a Comment” still appear on some pages (notably, at the bottom of my RSVP page: Is there any code I can use to remove this? Or perhaps cover it up?

    I’m also looking for CSS code to change the appearance of my RSVP form — unbold the field headings and make some of the text boxes smaller, for example.


    The blog I need help with is



    That’s not a CSS issue.

    Comments on all pages and posts on every WordPress blog are enabled by default so that means you disabled them on the posts you refer to.

    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 will have the Discussion hidden. You can reveal it by clicking on Screen Options on the top right corner of your Admin page, and checking the box that says Discussion so the module is included.


    I’ve unchecked every box on the Discussion page and the words “Leave a comment” still appear on my RSVP page.

    I’ve read elsewhere ( that this is a glitch with WordPress that needs to be corrected through the PHP file, but I don’t know how to access and change that, so I am hoping to find a CSS solution.



    1) Don’t read “elsewhere”. The wordpress.ORG forum is for self-hosted blogs: different software, different possibilities and restrictions, different problems and solutions.

    2) Timethief linked to the relevant Support doc: you probably didn’t read it carefully enough. The changes you make in Settings > Discussion become your new defaults, i.e. they apply to posts/pages you create after you’ve made those changes: they don’t apply to already published posts/pages. To disable commenting on an already published page such as the one you linked to, go to Pages > All Pages, hover over the page title, click Quick Edit, uncheck the option ” Allow Comments”, click Update.


    Justpi THANK YOU…! ive been looking for that solution for days, can’t believe it was that easy…
