Hello, All –
I’ve never encountered this before, but as the title says, a comment box has mysteriously appeared on every page on the site. Before you ask, comments are disabled site-wide. I’ve even tried using a small script in the functions.php to get rid – but event that doesn’t work!
The only thing I’ve been able to do is create a new (alternative) page template from which I have removed the following code:
<?php // If comments are open or we have at least one comment, load up the comment template if ( comments_open() || '0' != get_comments_number() ) : ?> <div class="comments-area"> <?php comments_template(); ?> </div> <?php endif; ?>
I have no idea what is activating this code when all the settings are switched off?!

For the record, I have a few commercial plugins installed including:
and several of the more popular tools from WPMUDev
I’ve tried deactivating several of them but nothing seems to work!

Just making sure you are referring to the Leave A Comment area at the bottom of the page?
The settings in Settings > Discussion only applies to new posts.
For existing posts, you need to go to Dashboard > Posts > Hover the title > Quick Edit then uncheck allow comment.
Let me know if this helps.August 17, 2017 at 11:23 am #368145Antar
None of the existing posts have “Allow Comments” activated.August 17, 2017 at 11:41 am #368165LeoStaffCustomer Support
You need to uncheck Allow Comments: https://s29.postimg.org/9j7fz1a5j/2017-08-17_1140.pngAugust 17, 2017 at 11:44 am #368172Antar
Hi Leo –
Thanks for this. It still seems bizarre. Presumably this setting is not “on” by default?August 17, 2017 at 11:47 am #368174
