WordPress 2.3.1 not obeying Windows Live Writer to close comments, pings (1 post)

    When uploading and/or downloading/editing/republishing pages (not posts) using Windows Live Writer 2008 (the final version, not one of the betas), WordPress 2.3.1 seemingly is not getting the message to not allow comments or pings to the page.

    I've tried this on four pages -- all newly created in Windows Live Writer 2008 -- after I noticed it happening on a page I edited using Windows Live Writer 2008.

    To fix it, one must login to the WordPress admin panel, pull up the page in the built-in editor, and change the settings. Because this is happening on a site under construction, and many people are involved, all using WLW 2008 and not the WordPress built-in editor, it is a little more of a pain in tracking the pages which have been checked and manually set to no pings/no comments.

    Server Info:
    PHP v4.4.7
    MYSQL v5.0.45
