    To set comments off as the default for all new posts go to settings in the left side menu > discussion > uncheck the "Allow people to post comments on new articles " box. You can override this for individual pages if necessary.

    If you have pages that already allow comments you will need to individually disable comments by going to your page/post > scroll down to the discussion heading > uncheck the box that says "allow comments".

    That should do it...

    zhoom's way of doing it is the better of the two... as it is easily reversible, and wont change if you update/change your theme..

    True. I once removed my comment form by removing some code and then couldn't get it back. Pretty awesome.

    Apologies for bringing up an old thread, but does anyone know if this can still be done in the latest WP version? When I am on a post/page I can't find the discussion settings. I have a number of pages I want to turn the comments off for, but keep it for blogs.

    you could just open your comment.php file and delete the code in it.

    I want to keep it for some, but not for all though, so that won't work.

    When you write or edit a post, under the post field there's tab called Discussion, just uncheck the "Allow comments".
