    Can you provide more information? I’m the developer of this plug-in and haven’t heard any reports of problems yet. I just double-checked that this works on a fresh 3.1 install and had no problems (even with the new advanced ‘screen options’ form!) (lucky me!).

    You may have misunderstood what the plugin does?

    This doesn’t hide existing comments. It simply disables the page comments check-boxes as a default option. This plugin is for people using wordpress as a CMS who use lots of pages, rather than posts. For these users, unchecking the “show page comments” and “allow track backs /pingbacks” form on every new page is a chore. This plugin is designed to help with that tiny nuisance.

    If you are having problems with the plugins functionality, please provide more information. (WordPress version, steps you followed, what you expected, and what happened) Thank you.

    Follow up: This plugin doesn’t un-set the value that may have been saved with existing pages. It does not have a retro-active effect. It’s great for moving forward, but you should uncheck the boxes and update any existing pages.

    No offence to the developer but this plugin is pretty pointless. WordPress automatically hides the option to disable comments which can be re-enabled by choosing the correct options in “Screen Options”.

    This isn’t to hide the checkboxes. It’s to uncheck them by default. I still don’t think you understand what this plugin does:

    Every time I created a new page, I had to uncheck those boxes. Most of my clients would forget to do this and it was annoying. I wanted to set the default to be unchecked on “pages” and leave them checked for “posts”. I was not the first person to desire this, and there were many posts from people asking for this functionality. So I made it, for free. If that’s something you are looking for, then great. If not, then it’s not for you. That’s ok too.

    I’m marking this resolved.

    Would you mind changing your “broken” vote back to “Works”?
