I finally got a minute of time to fix a problem that was bugging me for quite a while now (almost 6 months to be honest). I have a plugin running on this blog that automatically closes comments after 60 days. This to prevent spam by bots and such. But this also means that topics that are quite popular, can’t be commented on anymore, which is a shame. So I rewrote the original plugin to allow for a custom field ‘keepcommentsopen’ to be set. When set to ‘yes’, the auto comments closing plugin skips that post’s comments from being closed.
You can download the code from my WordPress plugins page.
