One big inconsistency with a lot of our themes were how they handled comments on pages. Some didn’t show a thing, and others would show comments all the time.
We’ve gone through all the themes here on WordPress.com and made them work the same way. Now by default pages will have comments enabled on them, but if you want to hide the comments and comment form you just have to switch “Allow Comments” off for that page.
How do you do that? When editing a page, click the plus sign next to “Discussion” and then uncheck “Allow Comments.”
Save the post, and you’re done.
