    I am very new to WordPress. I am currently using the Oxygen theme. I have disabled commenting on my static pages; however, a grey box appears on each of them where the comment field used to be. It says "Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open." Can anyone tell me how to get rid of that? I would be very appreciative!

    Add this to your style.css:

    #comments-template {
        display: none;

    I am dealing with this same issue. Disabled comments in the Settings> Discussion section, along with 'Do not allow' selected for all my pages, and I am getting the same "Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open." message that the original poster was getting.

    I added the above code to the Oxygen stylesheet and I get zero change. However, I know literally nothing about style.css and tried putting it in different locations and it had no effect.

    I'd really love that silly message gone, but I'm just not sure why this code worked for the OP and is not working for me.

    Any help is extremely appreciated! Thanks so much!
