    I've disable comments in the Word Press 'Settings' page, but they still show up on the template. What is the best way to disable comments in this theme?

    Thanks!

    In the WordPress setting page you can allow (or disallow) user to post comment on your future post or page, and each article has his own setting which overrides the one you choose on this setting page. But all already published comments will still show up on your site. Of course you can manually delete these comments via the 'comments' menu on the dashboard (normally it's somewhere between 'pages' and 'appearance').
    Another way to totaly disable comments for this theme is to delete some lines in the comments.php file: from <div id="comments-wrapper"> on line 10, to </div><!-- #comments-wrapper --> on line 28.
    But if you need later to reuse comments, you will need to re-edit this file.
