    If you use the Google search box in top navbar and search for:

    "Leave a Reply"

    You'll find multiple threads with the answer. It's in the comments.php file.

    All you need to do is change "leave a reply" in comments.php

    There's no reason to delete the file.

    Look for..

    <h3><?php comment_form_title( 'Leave a Reply', 'Leave a Reply to %s' ); ?></h3>
    And change the text to anything you want in any language.

    Hey Guys...

    Okay, after spending over two hours going through all the threads, this seems closest to my issue...

    Dan says in his reply above... "no reason to delete the file." and then he adds...

    "And change the text to anything you want..." (???)

    Like what? All I want to do is disable the "Leave a Reply" form, entry field & "Submit Comment" button BUT (only on my Home Page).

    Again, I'm just learning & really new to this, so what part(s) of...

    <h3><?php comment_form_title( 'Leave a Reply', 'Leave a Reply to %s' ); ?></h3>

    ...do I delete or change?

    Thanks for your help, David

    David,

    Comments are disabled in Settings > Discussion sitewide for all new posts and pages.

    And then on individual posts and pages of existing content you need to disable them by unchecking the "allow comments" box.

    If you don't see it goto Screen Options at top of post/page editor and activate the discussion box.

    This is unrelated to the theme and no editing is required. It's basic Wordpress functionality.

    If you can't find it after five minutes of searching Google and the forum, then make a new thread and just ask.

    If you just search the forum for: disable comments

    The first result gives the answer I mentioned.

    In google there are many tutorials including video tutorials that come right up when you search for: disable wordpress comments

    Dan,

    I finally got it! Thanks so much for your personal reply. Sorry to beat this dead horse on the Forum...

    In the WP.org forum I found this bit of advice (for existing content) "To disallow comments from already published posts, go to:

    Posts >> select them all and "Edit" under bulk actions and hit apply >> choose "do not allow" next to comments and hit update posts.

    I didn't realize that the Bulk Actions / Edit button opens up all those options for new & existing posts/pages!

    FYI, I'm running Default Template 3.5 and there is no "Allow people to post comments on new articles" under Settings > Discussions.

    Anyway, problem solved! Thanks again... this only confirms what I said in my Testimonial!

    David
