Support » Fixing WordPress » Is it possible to remove "leave a reply" box and/or "leave a comment"

  • I am new to wordpress and would like to use to find a theme to use as a basic website. I like the looks of both Freshy and Inove themes, but I would like to remove the “leave a comment” sections and “leave a reply” box from all pages except on my blog page. I have been able to customize several things using the CSS editor, but I can’t figure out how to get rid of these items- Freshy has the “leave a reply” on all pages and Inove has “leave a comment” and “leave a reply.” Is it possible to remove these items using the CSS editor?

    If this is not possible does anyone have a suggestion of a theme that easy to tweak into a basic CMS using the CSS editor? Thanks in advance for any advice!

  • I believe to solve your problem, the easiest way is to turn off comments for your blog.

    Under Settings->Discussion, uncheck “Allow people to post comments on new articles.”

    You can still turn that on for specific articles if you want comments on a particular article.

    you should be able to look for <?php comments_template(); ?> or similar code in page.php and comment it out like so:

    <!-- <?php comments_template(); ?>-->

    It’s better to comment out than to delete in case you change your mind down the road

    What about for the homepage? I’ve got rid of it on every page, but the homepage (no title) seems to automatically put it there…

    Did you ever figure this out?

    I’m having the same problem. It seems kind of silly that something that should be this easy is so hard.

    Do you want to change the text “Leave a Reply”? or remove the text? or remove the comments altogether?

    Hello Aaron,

    Thanks for your reply, but I started a new thread and was provided with the solution here:

    Thanks again though.
