Nothing happens after I disable comments on all posts comment forms are still appears inside my posts.

That is because your theme is not checking the comment status of posts in the correct way.

How can I remove the text comments are closed at the bottom of articles when comments are disabled?

The plugin tries to hide it (and any other comment-related elements) as well as possible.

If you still see this message, it means that your theme is overrides this behavior and you will have to edit its files manually for fix it. Two common approaches are to either delete or comment out the relevant lines in wp-content/your-theme/comments.php, or to add a declaration to wp-content/your-theme/style.css that hides the message from your visitors. In either case, make know what you are doing!

I only want to disable comments on certain posts, not globally. What do I need to do?

Do not install this plugin!

Go to the edit page for the post you want to disable comments. Scroll down to the box, where you will find the comment options for that post. If you do not see a Discussion box, then click on Screen Options at the top of your screen, and make sure the Discussion checkbox is checked.

You can also bulk-edit the comment status of multiple posts from the posts screen.

It worked. Problem is, the annoying dashboard notification won't go away and has no button to eliminate unless I disable the plugin: "The Disable Comments plugin is active, & blocking all comments. Rate us please. if some comments are not being deleted then go to settings and save again." If this is happening only on my system, I wouldn't mind, but it is occurring on all of my sites.

FYI - there is no warning. Once you select choices and click 'Save', it's done. This plugin does exactly what it states it will do. Add it to your plugin arsenal.
