    Hi, I run a not-for-profit website for the community of Darlington in the UK, I had your WordPress program installed on the site for 'Leaders' and 'Citizen Smith's of our colective communities to BLAST about this and that. But now I have had to stop linking to it from the main site as people or programs are inserting comments and links about porn and other real bad stuff! Even thou I have turned off the allow comments they still keep on comming, about 30 a day. I was wondering if there is a fix for this or an upgrade. The only thing is I dont understand php and could not install - upgrade this myself and would be looking for a helping hand to do it. The link to my WordPress posts is here; http://www.darlingtontown.co.uk/weblogs/archives/category/general/
    Best regards

    Podz has a really nice list of addons and tweaks and documents about how to fight comment spam on http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/spam/ :-)

  3. Turning comments and pings/trackbacks off only count for posts made in the future. You'll need to go into phpMyAdmin and run two queries to disable for all posts.

    Do this in the SQL field of phpMyadmin...

    For closing comments, substitute ping with comments.
