    Is there a way to turn off comments completely? Not because of spam, I just want to not have the option to comment on my posts..
    thanks!

    I tried that and then tried logging out and posting a comment and I still could?

    The comments need to be turned off manually for each existing article. Making the change in Options/Discussions only affects future articles.

    one more question- it now says sorry the comment board is closed at this time. Is there a way to change what that says?

    Yep, just click the Templates tab in your admin interface, load the wp-comments.php file, look for that phrase near the bottom of the file, and change it.

    ok one last question I promise. Can I change the (comments) line on the bottom of the article to say something else? (info) or something?
