Support » Theme: Alexandria » How to set all comments ("reply") fields off?

  • Resolved toeskola


    I am building a website and I am surprised I have already got this far. I did basic website with Alexandria theme. One thing I cannot solve is how set off all comments for postings. In the main page there is no this reply field but in other pages those are. I tried to to google and do few steps but none of those helped. Please someone has an idea? 🙂

    Another minor issue how to change the background image for header image. It is saying somehting child.css but I dont have a clue where to look that and what to do with it…

  • In general, you should be able to turn comments off under Settings > Discussion, and then under each page or post, click on Quick Edit and make sure Allow Comments is unchecked.

    For your other question, please post a link to your site.

    Thanks! That Quick Edit and there Allow Comments was solution for me. I have searching pretty much every other page in dozen times but never went there. Thank you!

    For another question, my site is

    Sorry I guess it was not child.css but the issue is how to change background for header…

    Make sure you are not modifying any theme files – as your changes will be lost when the theme is updated. See this thread about using a Child Theme –

    Alternatively, if you want to make just CSS changes, add a plugin to add custom CSS – they ADD this code there and change the background color – this is for the black part:

    .site-header {
        background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #1E1F22;

    If you mean the blue background – this is the CSS to add/change:

    .site-slider {
        background: url("images/alexandria/header_overlay.png") no-repeat scroll center top, url("images/alexandria/header_bg.jpg") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

    Find that image using FTP access and replace with one of the same name. OR add the image you want via the media uploader and then change the file path to it in the CSS above – copying that CSS to custom CSS – you’ll need to use the full file path in that case.
