Delete "Leave a Reply"

  • I’m a newbie to WordPress, and I prefer to use it as a CMS, rather than a blog. How do I turn off/delete the “Leave a Reply” box at the bottom of my pages???
    I’ve been searching everywhere, and not found a reliable solution yet.

    Have you disabled all commenting via Settings->Discussion?

    Hi esmi,
    Yep, already done. I have a sneaking suspicion I have to delve into the .php. Please tell me it ain’t so… !!

    Sorry but it sounds as if you’ll have to do some theme template editing. You’ll need to look for, and remove <?php comments_popup_link();?>

    Ok, cool. I’ll get started and will let you know!
    Thanks so much for the fast response!!

    if you really don’t want comments in pages, you can also remove <?php comments_template(); ?> together with the surrounding html tags from page.php.

    it is always a good idea to keep a backup copy of the original theme somewhere safe.

    I have this same desire, to remove the “Leave a Reply” box. But I don’t have that code in my pages.php of the Twenty Ten 1.2. Here’s mine:

    [code moderated according to forum rules – please use the pastebin]

    Any thoughts?

    I am a fellow newbie

    it sounds like we had a similar question
    why dont you look at my post and the responces i received

    why remove code when you can make it disappear altogther by a few simple tasks

    try and look into loop-page.php;
    if that does not exist in your theme, look into loop.php – although this might also be used for single posts.

    make backup copies before editing

    Thanks. I got it. I made new pages, copied the content of the original page to the new page, deleted the old page, and renamed the new page. Fixed the problem. Thanks.
