Leaving comments open forever (4 posts)

    Hi all

    How do I ensure that comments on each of my posts stay open forever?

    I have already unticked the default 'close after 14 days', but my test data dating back to 2008 always has no comments form visible, or when I add a comment manually, it says 'comments are closed'.

    Your help much appreciated.

    Regards
    Peter

    Go to your dashboad/setting/discussion
    http://yoursite.com/wp-admin/options-discussion.php
    and uncheck Automatically close comments on articles older than 14 days

    hii PeterStrempel,

    You have to log into your phpMyAdmin control applet. Then Locate and select your WordPress database on the left from the database dropdown list. Then select the SQL tab from the navigation tabs at the top. In the Run SQL Query box add the following code and click go:-

    UPDATE posts p SET comment_status = 'closed', ping_status = 'closed' WHERE comment_status = 'open';

    When you get an error, check your wp_post prefix from the database list and change the code to match accordingly. If successful, you should have disabled the ability to comment on your posts across your entire blog. To globally enable or re-enable comments, simply use the following code:-

    UPDATE posts p SET comment_status = 'open', ping_status = 'open' WHERE comment_status = 'closed';
