This plugin lets you display a conditional message when you have comments set to close automatically. After you publish a post, and while comments are open, it will show how long comments are open. After the comments section automatically closes, it will say "This article is closed to future comments."

Use it for:

  • Displaying how long comments are open
  • Show a different message depending on whether comments are open or closed
  • Dynamically count down the number of days remaining in the comment period

You can also add additional text that will display only when comments are open.
