Automatically Closing Comments

It is possible to turn comments off automatically after a specific number of days. To do this, visit the Settings → Discussion page and toggle on/off the option for “Automatically close comments on articles older than X days.”

On Pages comments are disabled by default, but you can enable them when publishing a new page or editing an existing one.
