    kay ive got a blog, ive set up password protected post. The post works fien but o nthe bottom of it people see text 'post is passwd protected please put passwd to see/write comments' [im writing this from my head but more or less thats what it says]. Thing is, theres no window inside the post to put this password so speaking shortly nobody can see comments field and comment when the post is protected [on unprotected posts theres no problem].

    Not sure if its bug of wordpress or theme.

    Here is my comments.php

    ?php // Do not delete these lines
     if ('comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
      die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');
            if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there's a password
                if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_'.$cookiehash] != $post->post_password) {  // and it doesn't match the cookie
        <p class="nocomments"><?php _e("This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments."); ?><p>
      /* This variable is for alternating comment background */
      $oddcomment = "graybox";
    <!-- You can start editing here. -->
    <?php if ($comments) : ?>
     <a name="comments"></a><h2><?php comments_number('No Responses','One Response','% Responses' );?></h2>
     <ol class="commentlist">
     <?php foreach ($comments as $comment) : ?>
      <li class="<?=$oddcomment;?>">
       <a name="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>"></a><cite><?php comment_author_link() ?></cite> Says:<br />
       <!--<small class="commentmetadata"><a href="#comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>" title="<?php comment_date('l, F jS, Y') ?> at <?php comment_time() ?>"><?php /* $entry_datetime = abs(strtotime($post->post_date)); $comment_datetime = abs(strtotime($comment->comment_date)); echo time_since($entry_datetime, $comment_datetime) */ ?></a> after publication. <?php edit_comment_link('e','',''); ?></small>-->
       <small class="commentmetadata"><a href="#comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>" title=""><?php comment_date('F jS, Y') ?> at <?php comment_time() ?></a> <?php edit_comment_link('e','',''); ?></small>
       <?php comment_text() ?>
      <?php /* Changes every other comment to a different class */
       if("graybox" == $oddcomment) {$oddcomment="";}
       else { $oddcomment="graybox"; }
     <?php endforeach; /* end for each comment */ ?>
     <?php else : // this is displayed if there are no comments so far ?>
      <?php if ('open' == $post-> comment_status) : ?>
