We have a site where we don't want comments or trackbacks.
We've done the following to disable trackbacks:
- In Settings > Discussion, unchecked "Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)".
- Unchecked "Allow people to post comments on new articles".
We've also gone back and disabled comments and trackbacks for anything previously published.
This works well for Posts and Pages, but we still get random comments and trackbacks for custom post types.
Now, I know that I can remove post type support for custom post types. However, we didn't explicitly set the "support" argument for comments in our custom post types definition, and in the Codex the default settings show that if you don't set a value for "support", the only thing the custom post type supports is the title and description fields.
Can someone help me understand why we are still getting trackbacks and comments?
Also, how can we stop them?
