Auto-Close Comments Plugin w/ 1.3 (13 posts)

    I've installed the auto-close comments plugin from the wiki, and am having a problem. It closed the comments in the right threads, but all of the sudden, my admin side disappeared. None of the pages loaded - view source showed nothing whatsoever. The only way to bring everything back was to delete the plugin file on the server.
    Has anyone encountered this?

    Not here - that plugin has worked flawlessly for me.

    I've been using it for some time myself and have never had any issues...
    But I have seen this in other areas.... usualy there's an error or something that causes the script to kick out. The end result is the blank screen syndrome.
    I don't know off hand if there is something you can set that will return all errors no matter what. That might be the only way to determine what's going on.

    Strange.
    Perhaps it could be a conflict with other installed plugins?
    I've currently got the following activated:
    Hide/Cut Text Post 0.91 (Scott Reilly)
    Kitten's Spaminator .9b (Kitten)
    Kitten's Spam Words 2.1.1 (Kitten)
    I've made no changes to the script from the wiki. (the second script on this page)

    Update: Doesn't look like a conflict. Deleted all the other plugins, and still got a blank screen. Deleted the auto-close, back to normal.
    :/

    Well, it seems to be working.
    I'm not sure what the difference is. I deactivated it, deleted it, pasted it into a new file, saved it over the old one, uploaded, and reactivated it.
    The only thing I did differently was use Dreamweaver this time instead of Notepad to save it. Would that make a difference?

    Shouldn't do no.
    That's an odd one. Especially if you didn't get a "headers already sent" error - which is what I would have expected to cause issue with plugins.
    No error message at all is odd.

    I just installed the plugin and set the day limit to 30, yet commenting is still enabled for all of my old posts. Is this plugin supposed to affect already existing posts, or does it only affect posts that are made after the plugin is installed?

    It does it's stuff when the db is altered.
    Try a test post ?

    Errr...
    I got a parse error when I attempted to publish a post:
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/sinsanct/public_html/wp/wp-content/plugins/auto-close_comments.php:27) in /home/sinsanct/public_html/wp/wp-admin/post.php on line 146

    I don't think you can open previously closed old posts.
    And try these files - depending on which you use, for the message:
    wp-comments.php
    wp-comments-popup.php
    Remember to clear your cache before checking for any changes.
