[resolved] Changing the words "No Comments" (5 posts)

    This might seem like a silly question but I'm relatively new to editing my own themes. I want to change the text "No Comments" at the bottom of my posts on the main page http://www.finktank3000.com/wordpress to "Discuss".

    I feel "No Comments" suggests to people that they cannot comment. Is this really simple to do? Thanks in advance for your help.

    It should be in your index.php template somewhere in the "postmetadata" section.

    Here is the code as in my WP 1.5 index. template (near the "feedback" division):

    <div class="feedback">
    <?php comments_popup_link(__('Comments (0)'), __('Comments (1)'), __('Comments (%)')); ?>

    I'd change it as follows:

    <div class="feedback">
    <?php comments_popup_link(__('Discuss [0]'), __('Discuss [1]'), __('Discuss [%]')); ?>

    HTH.

    Just as an aside - This interested me too, but I found the template I needed to change in my themes folder, under my currrent theme of course, the filename is "post.php"
    Thanks Moshu, for letting me know what to look for...
