Plugin for closing comments after a period of time - any such thing? (3 posts)

    I'm looking for a way to automatically "shut off" commenting ability on a post after a set amount of time (say, 2 weeks). Most people comment on posts in the first few days anyway. Having open comments on a post that's 6 months old is just asking for spam.

    I'm actually kind of surprised WordPress doesn't have this feature built in (ie, "keep comments open for X days, then close them") on each post as you create it. (Or does it and I'm just stupid?)

    Or, even something so simple as a way you could click on something in the control panel - "Close all comments for posts older than X" Instead of having to close them on each post one by one...

    If you look in the WordPress support docs you'll find this page for comments plugins. I can see one you might want there.

    Thanks. Sorry, I did look in the plugins list several times and for some reason just didn't see that one (Autoshutoff).

    (It doesn't help that the new design for wp-plugins directory is so awful, with the collapsing windows)
