[resolved] Automatically close comments on articles older than (9 posts)

    When I check the box to automatically close comments on older articles, it doesn't just CLOSE the comments, it makes all the previous comments invisible. Is this normal or is there some plug in I can use that closes them but keeps the comments that were already made?

    thanks!

    Include a link to comments in the post footer.

    sorry, can you be more specific? Not sure what that means or what it would look like?

    A) How far back do I need to go to find a post that is not still open to comments? Can you provide a link to a specific post you are having the issue with? I just checked about twenty posts daing back a ways and they either had comments or had no comments but none said comments closed.

    I turned the comments closed back off, at the boss's request. Try again, (sorry!) and go to the last post on the front page. They're all gone now.

    If you review the standard url for comments post/#comments for your last post, it goes to the comment section.

    As for the post link given, when we add that to the url:

    http://romanceuniversity.org/2011/12/30/authorial-new-years-resolutions-by-sarah-m-anderson/#comments

    nothing happens...this would be theme functionality...

    Seek advice from Woo Themes
