    I have a static front page and I can't seem to remove the Leave a Reply comment box. I just want a plain page with the one photo I have on the front. I don't have any leave any comment boxes checked in discussion settings. Whats going on?

    If you turned off comments after publishing the front page, you'll need to manually turn off comments on that page. Here's how to do it:

    Let me know how it goes.

    Didn't work. My site isn't being hosted on WordPress.com would that make a difference?

    It should work exactly the same way, since commenting is a core WordPress feature. Could you provide a link to your site so I can take a look?

    When you say it "didn't work" can you explain if you unchecked the comment box below the post, or did something else? Thanks.

    I solved it. When I changed themes, I saw how on the pages you can untick the comment box to remove.

    Great, glad you're sorted.
