 I am writing this to you because after updating our blog to ver. 4.3

 I noticed the "Reply" and "Quick Edit" and the Comments Dashboard works
 now but there's a new bug.

 Under SETTINGS > DISCUSSION > Default article settings

 I have enabled:


 Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks) on
 new articles

 Allow people to post comments on new articles


 But whenever I tried to "Add a New Page", the Allow Comments and Pingbacks
 are both unchecked.

 I have to manually select them every time I Publish a New Page.

 I found out that Pages default to comments disabled is intentional now and
 I find it VERY inconvenient...

 At least make a function to allow user to disable or allow comments by
 default at posts OR pages!!

 Not make it so it is disabled by default FOR ALL USERS!!

 That's not an improvement but an annoyance!


 Thank you and best regards, I hope to see this get fixed soon.
