Posts with auto-closed comments display link in frontpage instead of "Comments Off"
|Reported by:||dangelog||Owned by:||anonymous|
I have enabled the "Automatically close comments" feature.
Posts with no comments that were auto-closed still have the "No Comments" link displayed in the frontpage, instead of the correct one, "Comments Off". However, if you follow one link (i.e., display the post page), the comments for the post are actually closed.
I believe that comments_popup_link should be somehow fixed. I think it uses the admin panel value for the post, which is, even for "expired" posts, "allow commments". Instead, it should consider the auto-close setting as well and return "Comments Off" even if comments are enabled but were automatically closed.
PS: it would be very helpful if the auto-close feature gets some better explanations about how it works. For instance: why "expired" posts still have the "Allow comments" flag enabled?
