I could have sworn there was a “global” switch (so to speak) on the left side under settings to do that. I can’t seem to find that in the Twenty Eleven theme (that I recently switched to). Thanks so much for the help (again!). This is the blog I’m referring to: http://fictionalgraffiti.wordpress.com The blog I need help with is fictionalgraffiti.wordpress.com.

We can also overide the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page. When we close comments a phrase like “comments closed” or a similar phrase will appear and it can only be removed by CSS editing after purchasing a custom design upgrade. Disabling comments on pages in Twenty Eleven It also drove me crazy and the only way I could make the comments close on pages in a private blog was to remove the checkmarks form the “sharing buttons … blather at the bottom of the page.

Thank you Timethief for your help. Your blog, by the way, is a treasure chest of fabulous information. I refer to it often.
