Product and Feature Updates about Kinja

Fixed missing hide_web_comments_googlenews feature switch

When we switched to Magma, we started showing comments to the Google News bot. Updated the logic so we again prevent indexing of comments if:

  • the blog has the commentsDisabled=true blog property, OR
  • the user agent contains Googlebot-News AND the hide_web_comments_googlenews fs is on
