Hi

My name is Theo,

i was just wondering with the Itheme builder and child builder is it possible to build a theme that doesn't have the blog feature or comment feature. Basicaly i wish to use Wordpress to build website's for people that just want to display a little bit of info and look cool.

Regards
  Theo

Hi Theo,

That's actually something you can adjust in WordPress itself.  You can select to have a static homepage, not the blog, and just don't select a page for the blog to appear.  

You also have the option to disable comments in WordPress itself.  In the post/page you're working on, you can deselect the "Allow comments" option.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Elise

Thank you for your help Elise

Ive used quite a few systems, and wordpress looks good but the whole blog/comment is quite annoying.

Thank you for your time.

Regards

Hi Theo,

Originally WordPress was built as a blogging platform (and still is over at WordPress.com), so most of those features are still a part of the system.  However, there are many non-blog sites that use WordPress.  And you can do so much with it.  One of my favorite examples of a non-blog WordPress site is an artist's site - Citizen Cope.  You can also see some of the great things people have done using WordPress as a CMS, not a blog, on the WordPress Showcase.  

Let us know if there is anything we can help with.

Thanks,

Elise
