[resolved] how to remove comments from all pages (8 posts)

    How can I remove comments from all pages. Other themes I've used have allowed me to do so on the "Discussion Settings" page and/or sometimes on the individual pages themselves. But I can't find anything in either of those places that turns the comments off completely. No matter what i do, I see that big comment entry field and all this:

    You may use these HTML tags and attributes: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b>
    <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <strike> <strong>

    Thank you!!

    Do not edit the theme itself. First create a child theme for your changes. Or install a custom CSS plugin.

    Please excuse my ignorance. I successfully activated a child theme by following the instructions in this tutorial: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    At the moment, the only file I have in the theme directory is style.css.

    What do I do now? Is there a template file I need to edit? If so, which lines should I change?

    Thank you and again, please excuse my ignorance.

    Paste #comments{display:none} at the very bottom of your child theme stylesheet (style.css).

    Feel free to use the official forum (http://tidythemes.com/forum/) in the future, much easier to provide you support, track issues and manage topics.

    Thanks
