    Hi

    Pages (outside of categories) can be set up to support comments as well. But I didn't found in the admin how to delete such comments...

    Any help`?

    Thanks, tin68

    You can create a template file named page.php, put it in your theme's folder, and then WordPress will use it whenever it displays a page.

    So basically you could make a page.php file just like the index.php except with the comments section deleted. Then there would be no comments for pages.

    I think tin68 meant that if someone post a comment on a page not a post, how to find the comments in the manage comment section to delete etc? I interpret it that way though

    Truth, the page comments are with all the other comments under Manage > Comments

    Bingo! Yes of course - I searched under "pages" and not not under "comments".

    One little problem: You have to be very carefull when looking for the page name where to delete the comment - it's not so obvious. Well - but I could delete the comments - thanks.
