One Click Close Comments v1.0 (new)

I’d like to announce the first official release of the One Click Close Comments plugin (v1.0) for WordPress.

Conveniently close or open comments for a post or page with one click.

For more details, instructions, screenshots, and the download link, visit the plugin’s official homepage at :

Comments welcome on this post for this version of the plugin. Comments will be closed once this release has been superseded by another.

The plugin doesn’t add the notice as that is typically handled by the comment template for your theme. I believe most themes, in the comments.php and comments-popup.php theme files, will have something like:

<?php if ( 'open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>
  <!-- the comment form would be shown here -->
<?php else : ?>
  <p class="nocomments">Comments are closed.</p>
<?php endif; ?>

Try closing comments for a post and then viewing that post on your site to see if your theme has such a message. You can edit either or both of those comment templates (depending on which one is in use) to customize the message.

Hi Scott,

Nice time-saving plugin but I noticed a small bug when editing an existing post’s tags, the “button” disappears upon loading the posts page.


(WP 2.8)

After further testing, the button disappear after using the “quick edit” function in the posts page (only for the edited post).


Gene: Thanks for the bug report! It appears you are correct that using “Quick Edit” causes the button to disappear. I’ve made note of the issue and will investigate a fix soon. Thanks!
