WordPress child theme page.php changes (commenting out comments_temp)does not show any effect. Could you help me please?

Following the instructions I commented out comments_template() in the page.php copied to my child theme. As I am using a different theme the code looks a bit different, there is slightly more, but I commented all out that seemed related to comments. Why does it still not change?

<div id="primary" class="content-area">
    <main id="main" class="site-main" role="main">

        <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

            <?php get_template_part( 'content', 'page' ); ?>

                // If comments are open or we have at least one comment, load up the comment template
                //if ( comments_open() || get_comments_number() ) :

        <?php endwhile; // end of the loop. ?>

    </main><!-- #main -->
</div><!-- #primary -->

Hi Lili,

Are you working locally or on a server? If locally, did you make sure you were using the child theme and that the page you were using had the template set correct. If on a server, all of the above and did you push the updated file to the server?

I realized the problem, I was checking the changes on the wrong page, that was not affected.
