    How do I remove the comments section on my pages? I want them on my posts, but not pages.


    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)


    Hey again,

    If you’d like to remove comments from pages please see:

    Me again. So it appears that WP and I don’t get along so well. The “comments” box is unchecked on my screen options pages, but the comments boxes on my pages are still there. Any other suggestions?



    Hey Kellie,

    Strange… that should do it.

    Can you show me a page where this is happening, curious if it’s cached.

    Thanks again,


    Here’s a test page I’m able to remove it with unchecking “Allow Comments”:

    I’m not sure what the problem is. I want to remove the comment form completely from the Our Story page, the FAQs page, and the Contact Us page. Once I select a page to edit, then I cannot access the Discussion attributes. Any thoughts what I’m doing wrong? Thanks.


    I think what you need to do is to access the “screen options” tab at the top of the dashboard of each particular page you are attempting to edit and make sure the “Discussion” check box is checked. Then the choice about commenting, etc., should appear in a different dialogue box below (which you would uncheck).

    Thank you for the detailed instructions! That was exactly what I needed to do. It worked perfectly. :)


    Thanks for the help Jeremy!

    Looks like the option was unchecked via Screen Options like you’ve suggested.

    Happy to see you’ve been able to get this resolved.

    Have a great day!
