After the last update, 'comments are closed' is showing again, even though my settings are for all footers the same as following:
Code:
%comments('Kommentar abgeben', 'Ein Kommentar', '% Kommentare', '')%
Not sure if it was after the WordPress or Antahualpa update...?!

Can anyone cornfirm that?

Thanks!
Gilbert.

EDIT:
Hard-coding comments.php does not cure anything!
Code:
<?php // echo  $bfa_ata['comments_are_closed_text'] ; ?>
"Comments are closed" is still showing...

interesting - when I remove it, the message goes away.

try this put something in it and save it - look at the page - does the message change?
if so, remove it and save and look at it again.

Nope! Does not change anything.
I've even disabled W3TC and cleared the browser's cache.

EDIT:
I have the same issue on another site, too.

have you tried disabling all your plugins?
other than that, I'd have to actually get in ant poke about.

One thing I can tell you, it's NOT Antahualpa!
BUT, I just updated a plugin : SPAM FREE WORDPRESS Version 1.8.6! That's the perpetrator!

Great! Now I have to get them to fix whatever they've broken!

Thanks, juggledad!

I tried to talk to Todd (the guy who makes Spam Free Wordpress) but closed my thread leaving this:
Quote:
The issue you describe has nothing to do with Spam Free WordPress. You will resolve the issue faster if you start looking at something other than my plugin.
So, now I'm back here!

Is there a way to disable the comment function all together?
I don't need comments on one site, so I don't want the "Comments are closed." message at the bottom of every post (not pages though).

I have removed all occurences of "Comments are closed." and "Comments_are_closed" in all the files I could find it but it is still being displayed!

What can I do to get rid of "Comments are closed."?

Thanks!

I would suggest looking for another plugin because he is wrong - his plugin is causing the issue

To prove it do the following
1) disable the plugin
2) go to ato->Style & configure COMMENTS->Comments Are Closed text and enter
HTML Code:
<p>atahualpa says comments are closed</p>
3) go to a post and in the 'discussion' section' check off the 'Allow comments.'
4) in the front end go visit the post - you will see
HTML Code:
atahualpa says comments are closed
5) now activate the plugin and go visit the post again and you will see the
HTML Code:
Comments are closed
it comes from line 60 of your 'class-comment-form.php'
<p class="nocomments">Comments are closed.</p>

I personally also have an issue with any free plugin that requires me to register - this means they are 'checking in' each time it is used and I always have to wonder what are they collecting...
also any plugin or theme author that won't spend the time to 'consider' thier product may have an error is someonw I choose to stay away from.

juggledad, you don't have to convince me, that this is a plugin "error"!
But I thank you for your answer!

I just did what you said, not that I didn't already know this was going to happen, but just to make sure I didn't miss anything! :-)
Yes, it is Spam Free WordPress that's causing this sort-of-an-error!

Thanks again, juggledad! I'll get back with Todd again...

You know what?! You're right!
Spam Free Wordpress is gone! I'd rather mess with spam that a plugin that does stuff I don't know about!

Thanks again!
