    Could you please add something: After turning off the comments, how does one get rid of the “Comments are closed.” line that gets added to the page/post…?

    Would make your article just that little extra good…!

      That’s a good question, but I’m afraid that’s where my expertise on this topic ends. You might want to try the WordPress forums. Good luck.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to
    start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hi Marianne. I’m on a (not .org) setup with upgrades of a custom domain name and customized theme. Having used Drupal and other content management systems, I can’t recommend WordPress enough. It’s almost too easy.
