How to remove / disable “Leave a Reply” from WordPress Twenty Eleven theme?

To remove or disable Leave a Reply from Twenty Eleven theme requires no coding experience. It is a very easy process, even a child can do it 🙂

You can disable the comment option on Posts or Pages to hide Leave a Reply in two ways.

  • You can disable comment while you are writing your post. Press Screen Options at the top right corner and select Discussion checkbox. Now it will show Discussion panel just after the main textbox. Deselect both Allow comments & Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page to disable comment and pingbacks on that specific post or page.
  • If you already have multiple pages / posts, you can edit them all together. Go to All Pages or All Posts, then select multiple pages/posts. Now click the dropdrop memu, select Edit and press Apply. Now change Comments and Pings dropdowns to Do Not Allow and press Update button. You just have disabled Comments or Pings on multiple selections at the same time.

  • Hi. Thanks for this, but best way is: Settings > Discussion > No Comments.
    Michael 🙂

  • I followed your steps but the “leave a comment” box just won’t go away. The only page it decided to hide itself is on the blog portion.

    Every other page is set up just like it… it just won’t go away. Advice?

    Worked for me.

  • Don Martin

    I appreciate the instructions on deleting all the “Leave a Reply” boxes. I want it off all pages EXCEPT my Blog page (duh!). Without it, how does anyone leave a glog post? So….How do I get it to stay on the Blog page and go away on all other pages??? Help!

    • You can add is_page condition around the comments_template() in the single.php page template.

  • Handy tip. But it didn’t work for me.
    Like others I don’t want Comments on Pages.

  • Eric

    This is very helpful thanks. I always got the posts fine but the pages always seemed to have the comment box. I did not know how to edit “all pages” before. thanks a million!

  • I’ve always set my wordpress sites up so that it automatically defaults to no comments and then when I write a post I enable the discussion option as you mentioned above. Going to settings > discussion > is where that can be done. Great tips!

    • Thank you John for your comment. I always disable comments on pages.

  • Alisha Hubble
