Close comments on attached images
|Reported by:||dohman||Owned by:|
In posts, for gallery images and individual images which open in an attachment page when clicked, the image attachment page does not close comments after the designated xx days as the original post does.
This creates a pile of spam to manage for users that rely on closed comments after xx days and post lots of images.
You can replicate the problem with these steps:
1) In Discussion Settings: set comments to close after 1 day. 'Automatically close comments on articles older than 1 days'
2)Create a post with publish date 2 days ago. Insert an image or gallery which opens in in an attachment page, not just as the image file.
3) The post will have comments closed.
4) The image attachment page will still have comments open.
Here's a test post of mine. Notice the comments closed on the post but still open for the images.
Bottom Line: Comments should also close after xx days for image attachments, just as the post does. Users reasonably expect this.
Check the post type for image attachment page. It may be marked as a regular page as pages are not controlled by this setting.
