I am deleting comments, but I don't know where they are adding their comments, as I took the comment box away...

Hi mel200,

In your wordpress click on "Enter Review/ See Reviews " and click on "Create your own review". After filling the form click on "submit". For more details please find the attachment.

No, that's not it. I get those, and they are part of the wordpress review plugin. I can approve them, and they show up here: http://www.magickitchenreviews.com/?page_id=19

Maybe the better question is, how did this page show up on the internet at all, and how can I delete it? www.magickitchenreviews.com/?p=6

Malicious users don't need you to provide a form to submit data; they can send form data through a post request to your site without needing to use a form on the site.

In Settings > Discussion you can turn off the option "Allow people to post comments on new articles" to disallow comments to be received, but it does affect the whole site.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

The URL www.magickitchenreviews.com/?p=6 is the URL for the Page in your site with an ID of 6. You can go to Pages in your site dashboard and find that page and change the status to Draft or trash it if you don't want it.

I only have one page, and its ID is 19. Is there another way to find the page? Thanks.

Ok, Since I was in edit mode for page 19, I changed 19 to 6 in the url, and got a page. It has the content contained on the home page, here: http://www.magickitchenreviews.com/

If I make that a draft, the home page goes blank. They are connected somehow.

And now.. if I go to all Posts as opposed to all pages, I see that the home page is a post. I think I just set this up wrong.
