Can't remove LEAVE A REPLY box (7 posts)

    This has been the most frustrating thing ever! I have done what every one says. And no WORDPRESS isn't so easy you don't have to mess with code. I have nothing checked or marked in ADMIN SETTINGS or on individual posts to enable anyone to comment. The LEAVE A REPLY box is still there. So I did the // before the Comments Template and the LEAVE A REPLY box did disappear. However, my entire right sidebar disappeared from the main page and my side bar with widgets only appeared on post pages! Which means my twitter etc ended up not on the home page but on posts and pages, which they should only be on home page. http://www.55plusmoney.com and I am using Magazine Basic by Bavota. he says we don't need to adjust code either and mentions the the ADMIN panel and POST SCREEN OPTIONS but they don't work. HELP!!! I want this to appear more like a website than a blog and that Leave A reply has to go. Thanks

    Uncheck "Allow comments" in the Discussion pane on each Edit Page/Edit Post. If you do not see this pane, click Screen Options at the very top of the page and check "Discussion".

    esmi...this has been suggested and done many times. I have nothing checked in Admin Settings or on any post that allows comments. This is a problem that many are having, so I am not alone. So I have done all I can do apparently in the Admin panel. Please read my question again to see all that I have done to no avail. :( Who ever gives the secret answer should win a medal!

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I actually didn't have any plugins. I just activated Jet Pack but I was having this issue before Jet Pack. If I switch t Twenty Eleven Will I lose all my work? And if I switch it back will it all look the same??

    If I switch t Twenty Eleven Will I lose all my work?

    No.

    And if I switch it back will it all look the same??

    Yes. Your content - along with your theme settings - is all safely stored in your database

    I did as recommended. With 2010 Theme I took posts and put them in draft form. Looked and nothing is checked that would make the discussion box there. Discussion in Settings has nothing as well. Oddly it seems as I check around the internet the only real way to get rid of it is by changing the code. I am willing to do so but don't know where.
