Disabling comments in WordPress

asked Apr 7, 2013 in Website Builder by SaraSX (2,770 points)
Hi all
I have a website where I don’t want users to be able to comment at least for the time being. How do I disable commenting in my WordPress site. Please note that I am using Twenty Twelve theme on WP version 3.5.1.
Thanks in advanced

To disable comments go to your dashboard, then go to Settings and then click on Discussion. Then clear the check on the check box next to the  ‘Allow people to post comments on new articles’ option.
