When "Automatically close comments on articles older than X days" is enabled, comments appear closed on draft posts
|Reported by:||evarlese||Owned by:|
If the setting to "Automatically close comments on articles older than X days" is enabled via Settings -> Discussion, comments automatically appear as closed on draft posts until the post is published. This is regardless of the Discussion settings configured on the Post Edit page for the draft post.
- Via Settings -> Discussion, click on "Automatically close comments on articles older than X days."
- Create a new post and save it as a draft. Make sure comments are enabled in your Discussion module.
- When previewing the draft post, it will say "Comments closed" regardless of the Discussion settings.
The post will show comments as being allowed once it's published, they only show up as closed when in the draft format.
