Why did the settings for "Comments" on my blog change without my permission?

  1. Somehow, the settings for comments on my blog have changed. I had set it so anyone registered with WordPress could comment on all 5 of my blog posts; however, today I discovered comments for my first 4 posts have been disabled. I did not do this. What could have happened?

    The blog I need help with is velvetsilk.wordpress.com.

  2. Settings>Discussion: untick the option "Automatically close comments on articles older than x days", then scroll down and click Save Changes.

  3. This worked! Thank you very much! :)

  4. You're welcome. (As you see, nobody changed anything without your permission: you just hadn't noticed one particular setting/option.)
