    I have disabled the discussion features from my site. Can I also delete the line "Comments are closed" at the bottom of each page?

    yup....look around your theme files. index.php for blog post page, page.php for pages, single.php, archive.php, etc....depending what your theme uses. Delete the line of code that controls comments. It'll look something like:
    <?php comments_popup_link('ADD COMMENTS', '1 COMMENT', '% COMMENTS'); ?>

    or

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    you should be able to edit them from your admin area.

    admin area->appearance->editor

    Sure thing...I should have mentioned a common didclaimer earlier....it's always a good idea to have backups of theme files before you start editing....just in case you make a little mistake, you can revert back to original

    I'm having the same problem except I'm using Thematic theme and can't find anything similar to that line anywhere.
