    thanks for the post.

    you can turn the trackbacks message off i think in dashboard > settings > discussion

    Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)

    but you'll still get the comments are closed message. if you still want to allow the pingbacks & trackbacks but get rid of the message add this to your themes CSS.

    .comments-closed.pings-open.warning {
        display: none;

    if you disable ping backs in discussion settings too, then i think the css is slightly different. possibly just

    .comments-closed {
        display: none;

    hope this helps.
