Packaged themes should make use of comments_open() and pings_open()
|Reported by:||coffee2code||Owned by:|
Since comments_open() and pings_open() have been around for awhile, the packaged themes should make use of them instead of doing something like 'open' == $post->comment_status. The latter is exposes too much internal workings and is not filterable.
The comments.php file for the classic theme makes use of these calls, but classic/comments-popup.php does not. And for the default theme, neither comments.php nor comments-popup.php make use of the functions.
The attached patch modifies those three theme files to make use of comments_open() and pings_open() where appropriate.
