Support » Fixing WordPress » Interesting missing options in WP !

  • Hi,

    I’m using 2011 theme. Under setting>discussion, it is said that:

    Allow people to post comments on new articles
    (These settings may be overridden for individual articles.)

    But when I add a new page or new post, I don’t see the option to enable/disable comments!
    Does somebody know why?
    It would really be very handy to be able to Enable/Disable comments individually for each new item added (post, page, category)!
    Since comments are the soul of WordPress blogs, I hope to see, in the next WordPress version, a built-in option for Enabling/Disabling comments for each new post, page, category… without need to any special code!
    It should be really much more easier if we are able to directly enable/disable comments when we are in the created item (while editing it) (whatever this item is; post, page, or category)!

    In my mind, here are some interesting missed options in WP:

    Enable/Disable comments for this post

  • Enable/Disable comments for this page
    Enable/Disable comments for this category
    Hide/Show author(s) for this post
    Hide/Show author(s) for in this category
    Hide/Show date for this post
    Hide/Show date for this page
    Hide/Show date for this category…
  • ….
    Such options will make WP users life easier, won’t it?
    Would such an option be available soon?

  • Sorry, wrong post title; “missed”, instead of “missing”…! 😮

    On the post/page edit screen move your mouse to the top right corner of the screen and click on “screen options”. Make sure that “Discussion” is checked. Then look down the page and you should see the options to allow/disallow comments and pingbacks.

    Wawww! Shame on me!
    Thanks a lot!
    Why such an interesting feature is hardly reparable?
    It would also be fantastic if there was similar options for the date and author name in the same screen!
