    I found the section that supposedly tells you how to remove comments fields but they are already inactive and are still shown under the articles I have posted.

    Is there another way to remove the comments and recent comments fields are is this based on the theme itself and cannot be removed?

    Thanks,

    Do you have a URL handy so we can all take a look? What happens when you try to use your comment field?

    - Where exactly you found the section?

    - Have you disabled comments in Admin ==> editing/writing Posts?

    jamesstrocel - url is saucesearch.com. (Home page is a mess right now while I am trying to figure this out - please ignore.)

    t-p - I went to "post" to "screen options" and unchecked the "comments" box.
    I also did the same after going into "edit post". Comments is unchecked here too. This does not remove the comments field.

    I need to remove comments from both my "home" page and "pages".

    Any ideas? Do I need a different theme.

    t-p and jamesstrocel

    I changed theme and was able to take care of my "removing-the-comments-field". Comments are gone....whew.

    Now I have to figure out how to add: "contact us", "about" and "Privacy" fields to the bottom of my home page.

    How can I do this in the 2010 Theme? I want my front page to be completely static.. no comments or posting!

    Hi there! I am extremely new to Word Press and was really struggling to remove all traces of Comments on my site (Twenty Ten theme). Even when the page displayed 'Comments Off' I wanted to remove it but couldn't. However, down to a little bit of trial and error I've figured it out.

    All you need to do is go to Comments.php and REMOVE the following bit of code:

    <?php else : // or, if we don't have comments:
    	/* If there are no comments and comments are closed,
    	 * let's leave a little note, shall we?	 */
    	if ( ! comments_open() ) :?>
    	<p class="nocomments"><?php _e( 'Comments are closed.', 'twentyten' ); ?></p>
    <?php endif; // end ! comments_open() ?>
    <?php endif; // end have_comments() ?>
    <?php comment_form(); ?>
    </div><!-- #comments -->

    [Please post code or markup snippets between backticks or use the code button.]

    When I removed this there was no sign of anything to do with Comments on any of my pages.

    Hoping this helps! :)
