Hi,
I do not want comments on certain posts, how can I do this?

There are cases, when I want to publish a general information and really need no comments on it.
I'm using Grunion Contact Form Plug-in for contact us form and need no comments on it

Thanks

Oh! it was in the screen option as unchecked that is why it wasn't appearing.
Great, thanks.

Can I omit the "by Author Name" as well?
