I have no idea when this started, but I just noticed it today ... when creating a new post or page, there aren't any options to allow or disallow commenting, ping backs, etc
where did it go? is there some global flag that i've enabled that would remove this ability?
under the discussion tab i have all 3 boxes checked at the top
Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article.
Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)
Allow people to post comments on new articles
i've disabled pretty much every plug in, and even did a re-upgrade on 3.1
i guess i'm thinking that with 3.1 the functionality went somewhere else??
