  • Resolved humbleopinion


    I am using WordPress 3.3-beta4! I am having a problem turning off the allow comments on older posts from the edit post page. There was a recent upgrade to the site in the past few days and now it doesn’t work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    It might help if you described what the problem was/is.

    I’ve noticed the same in 3.3 beta 4 and it’s also true of pages.

    To recreate:

    1. Set the general settings to allow comments.
    2. Edit a page and uncheck Allow comments and then click on Update the save the page.
    3. I’m returned to the edit page again and the comments checkbox is checked again. If I view the page the comments box is still there.

    Not sure if it’s theme dependant but it happens on both twentyten and twentyeleven themes.

    Do you need more detail?

    I can’t replicate this using Twenty Eleven & WordPress 3.3-beta4.

    I can’t reproduce this either.

    Do you have ANY plugins?

    Damaged database, perhaps? That would explain why the updated setting isn’t being saved.

    It’s a fresh install running on XAMPP on Windows 7. I have no plugins apart from the two default ones and neither are activated.

    The ‘Allow Trackbacks…’ checkbox works as expected. And I can save content changes normally.

    I first noticed the issue on Firefox 8.0.1 but the same is true on Chrome 15.0.874.121 m – but wouldn’t have expected the browser to be affecting it.

    Have just tried again to double check and I still have the issue.

    I think this is fixed in current trunk, but was present in beta 4. See and

    That would be why I couldn’t repro it, Jon! 😀

    Okay, flagging resolved since this was fixed in trunk.
