Important note: Use this plugin if you don’t want comments at all on your site (or on certain post types). Don’t use it if you want to selectively disable comments on individual posts – WordPress lets you do that anyway. If you don’t know how to disable comments on individual posts, there are instructions in the FAQ.
If you come across any bugs or have suggestions, please use the plugin support forum. I can’t fix it if I don’t know it’s broken! Please check the FAQ for common issues.

A must-use version of the plugin is also available.
Some of the plugin’s behaviour can be modified by site administrators and plugin/theme developers through code:
DISABLE_COMMENTS_REMOVE_COMMENTS_TEMPLATE and set it to
false to prevent the plugin from replacing the theme’s comment template with an empty one.
DISABLE_COMMENTS_ALLOW_DISCUSSION_SETTINGS and set it to
true to prevent the plugin from hiding the Discussion settings page.
These definitions can be made either in your main
wp-config.php or in your theme’s

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

The plugin tries its very best to hide this (and any other comment-related) messages.
If you still see the message, then it means your theme is overriding this behaviour, and you will have to edit its files manually to remove 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 you you know what you are doing!
Go to the edit page for the post you want to disable comments on. Scroll down to the “Discussion” box, where you will find the comment options for that post. If you don’t 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.
Go to the tools page for the Disable Comments plugin and utlize the Delete Comments tool to delete all comments or according to the specified post types from your database.
