Expiring Posts on Upgrade (2 posts)

    It seems the Update process has reset all the wp_posts.comment_status fields on all my posts and pages to 'open'. Now I'm buried in post comment spam.

    Why?

    FWIW, I don't auto-expire posts because it also auto-expires pages so I run a batch job to expires posts (and not pages) that are older than x days. Re-running the batch job fixed this but only after getting buried in spam.

    It would be good to separate the auto-expiration of posts from pages.

    Shouldn't have. You may have a plugin that caused this, but my site with all closed posts remains closed.
