How To Automatically Close Comments

Posted on 14. Jan, 2010 by in Screencasts

WordPress 2.7 brought us the option of automatically closing comments on articles after a certain date. This is very useful in combating spam, and just reducing the overall amount of comments that you need to moderate. What good is a comment on a post from 2 years ago?

This feature needs to be turned on, and is as simple as going into your WordPress dashboard, scrolling down to the ‘settings’ menu item, and then to ‘Discussion’. In the ‘Discussion’ menu item, simply tick the box that says “Automatically close comments on articles older than __X__ days”
