MT Importer doesn't honor default article comment settings
|Reported by:||novasource||Owned by:|
I have a blog on a network that has Allow people to post comments on new articles and Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.) unchecked in wp-admin/options-discussion.php. The intent is to disable comments and trackbacks, and I can confirm this is happening for new posts when I do Post > Add New.
However, the MT Importer doesn't honor this configuration. All imported MT posts have comments enabled.
