    Let us start with the basic work here. to remove comment boxes from “pages” you should disable it by going to the dashboard and then:

    Pages >> All Pages

    then hover over your pages one by one and clik on Quick Edit button and then look for something like this:

    It is a question of removing the tick from “Allow Comments”. this will remove the comment box from your pages.

    Post back if this is not what you are asking about.

    Thank you,

    This does remove the comments box, but it does not remove the Title, post date and number of comments at the top of the form. See: for example. I want to remove the whole first heading so that the first part of the page starts at “recipes by type”. In this sense, I want the blog format removed from every page except the homepage. Thanks again for the help and let me know what else I need to do 🙂


    Try adding this to your CSS:

    .byline {
        display: none;

    You want .headline_area instead of .byline since you want the content to begin with “recipes by type”

    Thanks, but what CSS page are you referring to? If I add it to Appearance > Edit CSS and put in the code you’re suggesting, won’t that remove the full headline/byline for my whole site, including my blog? I would like for my blog (the homepage) to still have header titles and bylines….let me know what CSS sheet you’re referring to.



    Wherever you are adding custom CSS — and no, it will only hide elements that have the “byline” class — which is not your title or tagline. If you want the “recipes” removed too, do this:

    .headline, .byline {
       display: nonel

    Thanks for getting back to me again…but I’m still wondering where I’m supposed to put the actual CSS code…I know there’s a spot for html on each page, but not css. Sorry, I’m a beginner at this…kind of need it spelled out for me. 😉
