Problem: I want to disable the comments box on a static page I have put up on my Wordpress website, but I can't find any option to do this
Solution: (From the thread here) The option is a little hidden. 'Edit' your page, go to the top right hand corner where it says 'Screen options' and click to open the drag down menu. Check the 'discussion' section. This will make a new options box visible (found below your page text edit area). Uncheck 'Allow comments'.
