[SOLVED] Creating a new page template

Hi. I've been having problems with the comment box appearing on pages created with a certain plugin. These pages do not have the typical "allow comments" checkbox in the dashboard. I asked the plugin author how to remove this box and at first he told me to make a copy of my theme's "sinlge.php" file (or "page.php") and rename the new copy this specific name that will then serve as a template for the plugin pages. However, in Atahualpa, there are no files with such names. At least I cannot find them.

So then the plugin author responded with this: "Then you have to ask the theme developer how to create a page template without the comment form."

I've never created a page template before. Can someone help me?

Thanks!
Emanuel

The plugin is called Download Manager. Here is the link:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/download-manager/

When you create, edit or display a download package, it works just like a regular wordpress "page" except the page is called a "package." Kind of like All-in-one-events-calendar, the way you create an "event" and in the dashboard you have a list of events that work just like pages except they are events instead.

Anyway, in the dashboard, when you are on the create/edit download package page, the usual check-boxes that say, "allow comments" and "allow pingbacks" are not there. So I cannot uncheck them. Hence the comments box appears on each download page I create.

I just instaled it, created a package, added teh short codet to a post. In the post I shut off comments (unchecked the 'allow comments in the 'Dicuession' section)

how are you putting the package into a post/page?

Do you have discussion enabled in screen options? I installed the plugin and the allow comments checkbox shows.

Oh right I forgot to mention... I have the Pro version. In the standard version you put short-code into a post. In the Pro version you *can* do it this way, but you lose a lot of the features. The Pro version creates pages (called "packages" but they display as their own page).

Here is one of them. (Keep in mind this site has not been launched yet, so it is on my personal server at the moment. When I launch it for my client it will move to its own domain.)

You could just use CSS to not display the comment forms.
