    Is there a way to turn off comments for all posts other than editing each and every one?

  2. This would do:
    http://wiki.wordpress.org/Auto%20shutoff%20comments

    Set it to one day for the first day, then after that you could adjust.

    Go to Admin->Options->Discussion and uncheck the "allow people to post comments.."

    Andrea,

    Thank you. I tried that one but it doesn't seem to like WP 2.01.

    Vaam,

    That only seems to work for new posts from the time you make the change.

  5. You do have to wait a few minutes for it to catch up. Or did it give errors? I know it works for 2.0.

    I had to to turn off the plugin after activating it because of the error msgs. I didn't realise that although it was giving error msgs it was also working.

    Thanks for you help. I appreciate it.

    But is there a plugin that works in 2.0.1 that does this? I would like comments to be open for a number of days, and then close automatically.

    Ideally there should be an option to let some posts still have open comments. And the plugin should list all posts that still have comments open somewhere.

    What kind of errors? If you look at the plugin file and see anything after the last php command thingy bracket, ( ?> ) then it'll give an error, even if it's just a blank space or carriage return. So double-check that in the plugin editor.

    "I would like comments to be open for a number of days, and then close automatically."
    Oyvind, that's what this plugin does. You can set how many days right in the file.

    Yes, great! But it just shuts off everything does it? I have some older posts I want to keep open.
