  • Resolved Chorley Rocks



    Is it possible to use this plugin to prevent new comment threads on an old post, but allow existing threads to be commented on.

    I’m thinking that as a new post is created, new conversation should move to the new post. However, existing conversations can be carried on against the old posts – for a period of time anyway.

    This plugin doesn’t do automatic closings. It only affects the comments setting on new posts/pages/media/custom post types. Then there’s the option to disable/enable all comments/trackbacks, but it doesn’t give a date filter.

    What you are looking to do can be done with WordPress core. In Settigns > Discussion, there’s an option to automatically close comments on articles older than XX days.

    Thanks for the reply. I don’t want to close the discussion all together – only to new conversations. Replies would still be allowed for a period of X days.

    Yeah, that’s a feature request you’ll have to find through another plugin. I’m really not sure what’s available to do that. Sorry.
