Add disable comments on media files attached to posts and pages? (13 posts)

    Amazing how persistent comment spammers are. I turn off comments, they go after trackbacks. I turn off trackbacks, thanks to your plugin, and they now dig deeper to go for image attachments.

    Is there a way to add turning off comments for media attachments?

    Let me look into this. It shouldn't be difficult to add in the extra option to close it on media attachments.

    Got an estimate on when this might be done? It seems that since I closed my trackbacks and pingbacks, the media issue has been the next level the spammers have exploited. Many MANY thanks in advance.

    It's out as of the past few minutes. v1.5 adds support for custom post types and attachments.

    Do check it out and let me know if this works well for you.

    How would I turn off trackbacks and pingbacks once a post or page is 30 days old but still allow for comments?

    I never want attachment comments. Let the commenter comment on the post.

    To shut down the trackbacks and pingbacks, just make sure the "Close Pingbacks/Trackbacks?" is checked and the ticks against post, page, attachments, etc. is checked.

    To shut down attachment comments, for now, you can click "Close comments?" and also check "attachments" and it should shut off the comments on attachments. Keep posts and pages unchecked.

    I'm still getting comments on media images. I had set the plugin to 10 days with post, pages, attachments, pingbacks and trackbacks to be disabled.

    I'm getting comments on images posted 6 months ago.

    Sample page:

    Is it just the media pages that have the comments enabled? Is it closing properly on posts and pages?

    Yes. It seems that way.

    Could you please post a screenshot of your Settings page for me to see them all?

    Let me do a bit of checking on this one.

    Does it help turning on the daily cron?

    Hi,

    I released v1.6 which should fix this issue now.
