Did you make a new page on your WordPress.com blog, and the page has a comment or ‘reply’ box? Do you want to remove the comment box on your WordPress.com pages?


Below, check out my simple, step-by-step tutorial and learn how you can easily remove this feature on your pages.

So you have a static page, not a blog post. Maybe it’s an ‘about’ or ‘contact’ page – a page that doesn’t ask for a reply. And, it has this ‘Leave a reply’ comment box at the bottom of it.

It’s such a simple step, but not at all intuitive.

In order to remove this comment box, log into your WordPress.com website, and go to your WP-Admin page – it’s like a control panel or dashboard, the area on your personal WordPress.com where you can change your theme, make new blog posts – and where you make your pages.

WP-Admin or WordPress.com ‘control panel’ view, featuring the ‘Pages’ link ‘All Pages’.

Once in your control panel, hover over the ‘Pages’ button, and notice the pop-out menu that appears. Click on the option ‘All Pages.’

Inside WordPress.com ‘Pages’ view, hover and select ‘Quick Edit’.

You will be taken to a screen that shows you all of the pages you created on your WordPress.com website. To remove or turn-off the ‘comment box’ on any page, you must hover over the chosen page title, and click the text link ‘Quick Edit’ that appears.

Remove check-mark from box labeled ‘Allow Comments’ and hit ‘Update’ to save.

Once clicked, a box with ‘Quick Edit’ options will appear on the screen. Remove check-mark from box labeled ‘Allow Comments’ and hit ‘Update’ to save. When you create a page, this check-box is automatically marked, so you must manually remove this option for each page you have created.

And the process is complete – no more ‘Leave a Reply’ comment box on that page!

Now repeat these steps for each page on which you’d like to remove the comment box.
