I want to disable comments on certain posts, or else, disable comments on all posts older than xx days. I tried going to the individual post and disabling comments there, then I also tried instead to go to the Settings > Discussion and clicked to disable commenting on all posts older than 365 days. However either way I did it, I noticed then when I refreshed the post which I wanted to stop having people comment on, the post no longer displays comments that have already been published.
Surely one can disable ability to comment on a post without it removing comments that have already been made an published. How is this done?
FYI, using Thesis theme, 1.8.5, and latest version of WP (3.5.1)
