Deleting ability of visitors to register / comment (6 posts)

    Hi there,
    I have just set up the following site http://savetheharlanbeagles.com/

    I am a beginner! Some pages (not all) are giving visitors the ability to leave comment via registration. This is an info-only site so we don't want comments.

    In the dashboard, there doesn't seem to be any box/function to ensure that where our copy ends, the page ends and no 'leave reply' or comment box appears.

    Hope somebody can help!

    You can configure comments in the admin under Settings, Discussion.

    Hi there,
    thanks for responding. I have gone into that section and unchecked the box that says 'allow people to comment' but it is still showing :(
    Somebody mentioned it being the theme that is to blame, but I can't see how this would impact if the settings in 'discussion' are allowing me to check/uncheck?

    Try posting a new test article and see what happens.

    Hello!

    I went into the theme and deleted all code relating to 'comments' - dont want to speak too soon (as my site seems to have life of its own!) but they have disappeared! :))
