pLEASE tell me how to get rid of it. This is drivign me crazy.
OK. I am asking a question. It sounds to me that you are looking for a problem. I just asked a question. you asked previously to show some respect and I am asking a question. There is something wrong here.
This is my setting which I already did before you sent your comment. I still cannot get rid of that hello world page in the home page. LOOK at my setting.
OK. I did another trick and it worked. Now, it has the comments section ON to leave a comment. That is turn off, is there another place where I can turn it off?
Well if you selected a home page and it still shows a blog post, there must be a issue in your wp installation and is not theme related.
If there are already post before you turned of the comments, you will need to set it manual on post or page
Ok, I figured it out, This is what I did:
Remove this code from the loop-page.php and remove this code
// If comments are open or we have at least one comment, load up the comment template
if ( comments_open() || ‘0’ != get_comments_number() )
but FYI, this is brand new installed WP. Explain to me for my knowledge so I’ll know and i appreciate for your feedback. What do you mean set it to manual? Where I don;t see any setting there.
Wat Mike means with the manual part is that there is no site-wide default that can be set for the comments to be turned off. You have to manually turn them off on every page or post you would like to remove them from.
This is most easily done by going to your page (or post) in your back-end dashboard. Then opening up the screen options in the top right corner to make sure the box for discussion is checked. Once you’ve done that, scroll down past your page/post options until you see the discussion section. There, you’ll want to uncheck “allow comments”, update your post/page and it will be gone.
Kevin, What a nice response man. You rock. I put the code back into the loo-page so it will remain intact then follow your instructions.
Good morning by the way.
There is a default setting for a side wide turn of for the comments, check the screenshot.
But when you have created post BEFORE you have disabled the setting: Allow people to post comments on new articles
The post / pages already created will still show the comment form, but not new created post. So these you will need to disable by hand.
Kudos to you MIke. But it looks like when I click on Screen option and enable comments, I don’t see your screenshot. Are you running the latest version of WP?
Then Don’t look at the wrong spot 🙂 The previous screenshot you will find below Settings of your wp dashboard, look at the screenshots below you will see. Yes I’m running always the latest wp version.
For more info visit wordpress.org as these are features of wordpress
Thanks for the heads up there! I hadn’t noticed that option before!
Ok man, these screenshots look different than the ones you sent previously. Don’t worry about it.
For someone that has purchased multiple themes this is a weird question, why? because one of the first steps you will do when you setup a wordpress site is changing the home page…..
