  • I’m using the TwentyTen default theme.

    I need to remove the Leave a Reply form from various (but not all) pages.

    Is there a simple way of doing this?

    Many thanks.

    Don’t edit the Twenty Ten theme. You need to create a child theme for your changes.

    I’m sorry, but that’s beyond my skill level.

    Is there a simple way of not allowing Leave a Reply on my pages, and just allowing visitors to leave a comment on the Blog page?

    It seems odd that Leave a Reply is on all pages by default.

    You could just disable commenting via Settings -> Discussion. You will also have to uncheck “Allow comments” in the Discussion pane on the Edit page of each existing Post or Page. If you do not see this pane, click Screen Options at the very top of the page and check “Discussion”.

    Thank you, that’s very helpful.

    I don’t see in Settings -> Discussion any way of disabling comments, but unchecking Allow Comments works on the edit page of each existing page.

    However, even if I Allow Comments on the Post page, there doesn’t seem to be any visible option to allow a visitor to Comment.

    If they click on 1 Comment, then, yes, they can comment, but there isn’t an invitation to comment. I assume it is designed this way on purpose?

    See Settings -> Discussion -> Allow people to post comments on new articles

    Many thanks.

    Last question: what does Article refer to in the Word Press jargon?

    Where did you see the reference to “article”?

    Settings / Discussion Settings / Default Article Settings in the Twenty Ten theme.

    Ah! That will be Posts.

    Many thanks, that makes it clear.

    I realise that a similar question about the Twenty Eleven theme ought to be in a separate thread, but I’m having the same problem in that theme with trying to find the option, on pages, to not allow comments.

    Looking at Screen Options, and ticking Comments doesn’t help.

    Do you have any ideas? In other words, on some pages, I don’t want to have Comments available. Could you please advise me how to do this?

    Great! Many thanks for your help.
