[resolved] disable comments on Media files alltogether (5 posts)

    Just noticed an enormous amount of spam on one of the images which was attached to a post. Seeing there's no option to disable comments on attached media, I quickly hacked a plugin myself to do that (and only that) only to realize such a plugin probably already exists.

    And indeed yours fits the bill and is certainly more flexible, but the option 'disable comments on media files/ attachments' would be a welcome addition to 'inherit from parent post'. Any chance that could be added, so I could dump my quick hack? :-)

    I've actually written a separate plugin that does just that - Disable Comments. You can use it to completely disable comments on all media.

    Hope that helps.

    that's great! ideally the functionality of both plugins would be combined into one, allowing to either inherit from parent or disable comments on media. or is there good reason to keep those 2 seperated?

    Not really, they just sort of evolved separately, and now the Disable Comments plugin has become quite popular with people who want to use WordPress as a pure CMS.

    It would probably make sense to add that functionality to the Comment Control plugin as well. I'll push a new version out soon which does that.
