Usually when one has a blog, one hopes that people will make comments. It’s a nice affirmation that someone is actually reading your blog—and hopefully liking it too!
However, there may be times when you prefer NOT to have a Comment Box on a blog. For me, this moment came while working on a simpler solution for church Websites. I wanted something user-friendly, something that, once set up, could be updated without the need to understand HTML or CSS. WordPress.com looked very promising!
The problem was that the Comment Box on the individual pages gave it a very bloggish look, while I was after more of Website look. It gave it an amateurish look, which was definitely not the look I was going for. There is, thankfully, a quick and simply way to remove the Comment Box from the individual pages. Here’s how!
1. Go to the Dashboard, then click on PAGES in the left-hand column.
2. Click on QUICK EDIT under the name of the page for which you wish to remove the comment box.
3. Remove the check-mark from the ALLOW COMMENTS checkbox in the right-hand column under QUICK EDIT.
4. Click the UPDATE button.
Congratulations! Now you can go to that page and see that the Comment Box is no longer there. You may repeat the process for each individual page where you do not want a Comment Box.
