Disabling Comments on a Static Page

commentWith our recent theme additions, you may have noticed that not all themes are created equal when it comes to functionality and options.  A question that I have been getting is:

How can I turn off comments for a static page?

This option used to appear on the post page while you were writing/editing.  Most of the new themes do not have this option.  Not to fret.  There is a way to enable/disable comments.  From the navigation menu, click on “Pages” to give the list of your current (or draft) pages for your blog.  Hover over the page that you would like to first work with until the quick edit menu appears.  Click on “Quick Edit.”WordPress Quick Edit MenuThen locate the checkbox to enable/disable comments on the page.

WordPress Allow Comments

That’s it!

The quick edit menu has other features that may be useful to you such as a fast way to change a post title or author.
