Old Post Alert

Description

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.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin archive and expand it (you’ve likely already done this).
  2. Upload the old-post-alert.php file to your wp-content/plugins directory (not in a sub-folder).
  3. Go to the Plugins page in your WordPress Administration area and click ‘Activate’ for Old Post Alert.
  4. Congratulations, you’ve just installed Old Post Alert.
  5. Optional: set a CSS class for old_post_alert to style the banner.

FAQ

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!
