[resolved] static pages (6 posts)

    I just installed syntax theme and I like its simplicity.

    My needs are simple:

    1. About static page - no comments and no meta links
    2. Blog posts - comments allowed

    How do I achieve 1 above?

  2. Glad you like Syntax!

    Comments are a core WordPress feature - not theme-specific - and can be easily managed in the dashboard. Here's a guide: http://en.support.wordpress.com/enable-disable-comments/

    In a nutshell, for the scenario you describe, you'd leave comments open under Settings > Discussion, but close comments manually on your About page and any other pages you'd like. Details on how to do that are found in the guide above.

    Which "meta links" do you want to hide specifically? Could you please provide a link to your site?

    Thanks for the response.

    I am a first time blogger and struggling a bit.

    Here is the link to my site

    I would like to remove the below links from both static pages and blog posts:

    Log in
    Entries RSS
    Comments RSS

    Also remove below links from static pages:

    Recent Comments

    Is it possible?

    Have you tried adding an empty Text widget to the sidebar via Appearance -> Widgets?

  5. Hi Murty, the widgets you mention are displayed by default unless you add your own widgets to the footer sidebar areas.

    Head into your dashboard under Appearance > Widgets, choose any widgets, and drag them into the footer sidebars.

    If you don't want anything displayed in the footer widget area, as Esmi mentions, you can just drag over a blank text widget if you prefer.

    Here's a guide on using widgets in case you're new to using them: http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/

    Let me know if you're still stuck!
