    Hi, can someone help me pls? I have an autoblog on WP and each time a new post is posted, it allows comments and I have to go back and edit the post to manually disable the comments...Can someone tell me how I can disable comments on all future posts; so that when a new post is posted the comments are closed automatically. Thanks...

    A: Install the Akismet plugin.
    B: Assuming you're running WP-O-Matic, go to each campaign's Options tab and set the Discussion Options to "Closed"
    C: Barring that, you can just go to the Discussion Settings area and automatically close comments older than 0 days. That might work ... never tried it though.

    Look at the Discussion Settings closer, and you might find an alternative that makes you happier.

    If your using CC, you can disable comments in the 'fetch' page. I'm not too sure how you can do it on other posts, but it seems like the problem has been solved, but I post comments on my blog and I've had no real problems, apart from a load of e-mails because I can't be asked to change the e-mail I registered my auto blogs with.

    Are you talking about the cronjob emails? Either add the "--silent" option to each line in your crontab that you do NOT want to send you mail every time it runs, or add

    Code:
    MAILTO=""
    to the first line of your crontab. MAILTO changes the email address to which cron sends its updates. If you set the value to empty string as above, cron will not send emails.
