Took a while to figure out how to turn off comments on static pages in WordPress.
Found the answer via WordPress support pages.
– Edit the Page in question
– In the top right of screen there should be ‘Screen Options’ menu. Click this.
– A drop-down menu (or similar) should then appear, allowing you to tick/untick lots of selections which will then be available when you’re editing Pages. One of these selections should be ‘Discussion’ and ‘Comments’. Tick both of these – and any others you want.
– Should then have lots of extra options added to your ‘Edit Page’ editing options, including ‘Discussion’ where you can turn off ‘Allow Comments’
Its a bit hidden away, so no wonder people (including me) have had trouble finding it.
