I am new to all of this, and I am trying to delete all comment and posting boxes from my site. I am using the responsive theme, and all of the tutorials that I have checked out, are outdated.
I don't have a small check box at the bottom, and I don't have an option to "un-check" in my "settings> discussion" either. Out of frustration I deleted the whole comment.php file (after copying it first). That worked. I know that it is not wise to do this because when I go "live" I would eventually have issues.
So, I have learned that I can make a child theme but I still don't know how to do it.
Can I just put the comment.php in my child theme and then delete the code, leaving the empty file.
Thank You for any help,
