My question is fairly simple, I believe, but I wanted to get some professional advice rather than just start knocking around in the code and breaking stuff.
I want commenting to be enabled for posts, but totally disabled for all pages--I know that you can do this through the admin interface, but I want to totally remove the comment interface from every page on my site (so that I don't have to look at the "No comments yet. Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time." message constantly). What I want to know is whether there's some sort of base "pages.php" file (or something) that I can edit in order to accomplish this.
Thanks in advance.
