Remove Comments, Responses and Recent Posts Links on most pages WordPress

I do not need Comments and Responses on any pages of the site. How do I remove this? Is it a matter of commenting out the command on the parent theme?

Look at this plugin:

If you want to delete comments and response to a specific page, massively directly from SQL use this query:


This id of post can also be a page, only find his id.

Francisco Javier Carazo Gil comments:

If you want to remove the option to make comments, you have to template and then in single.php find comments_template() and show it depending a condition you can create:

if(get_the_ID() != ID_PAGE_NOT_COMMENT)

petrisor Daniel answers:

If you want to remove comments just from pages(like contact or about us) you need to delete this line* from page.php in your wp-admin teme editor.
If you want to remove comments form articles too delete this line* from single.php

* <?php comments_template(); ?>

Recent posts are in sidebar?
