Old Post Alert


Old Post Alert shows a banner in your comments form for posts more than a month old. The banner reminds the commentor that there may be newer information available later in the blog. This may cut down on comments that are irrelevant due to more recent developments.


Why doesn’t the banner show in my theme?

This plugin relies on the comment_form to be present in your comments.php template. If this does not exist, you will want to add it:

<?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?>
Anything else?

That about does it – enjoy!
