    Turning off the edit links in the comment area when comments are closed would be a nice feature.

    lexhair,

    That's a good idea, but do you think there will be times when others would like to edit a comment on a closed post?

    Hi Ronald...fair point. As an admin, I only allow the commentators (?) a fixed amount of time to edit their comment so no big deal there. As an admin, I made my suggestion because the resulting output on my theme was a bit mashed up (as admin) showing the edit links (and icons) when the Reply to Comment button (WP 2.7.1) was missing.

    What wound up working on my theme (after I made my initial post) was turning on clearfix:after. I had that option turned off before I updated to WP 2.7. Then I edited my theme CSS and comments.php for WP 2.7 and stripped out the theme's original, native AJAX commenting which used scriptaculous. I never went back and turned clearfix:after on until this morning. So now I can leave the edit links on as admin and the css layout is fine.

    I guess what I'm saying is that clearfix:after fixed the layout problem which only I saw as admin so I don't have to turn off admin edit links in the comment area on posts with closed comments.

    All the best,
    John
