    Try to install plugin "Disable Comments", it allows to disable comments on each post/article.

    I will check this out.

    I have it activated but no api now..
    It says you can;t install it if it's for commercial use.. it is just a website with about page, location and contact page, but for a small company, would that be for commercial use if not selling anything online..
    Otherwise I dont think I can use it.

    Just go to your editor and delete the php in your comment file.

    I made a real quick video to show you how easy that is done.

    Sorry, can't help you there aside from going to comments and deleting them 25 at a time.

    Perhaps someone with some tech knowledge will come along and offer you a quick way to help you out there.

    Ok, then use "delete all comments" plugin to delete all the comments
