I'm recently customized my comments.php file, but I'm a complete newbie at this and think I missed something because comment numbers no longer appear on my blog. For instance, if someone comments, it not longer shows: Comment Number, Commenter Name, Comment. Now it just shows Commenter Name, then the text of their comment.
I went into the WP codex to try and figure out what I was missing, but alas, no luck. Could you please help? Here is what I have at the moment, and if you look at my site the Comment ID (of all the comments ever submitted) is showing on a post, instead of the Comment # for the post in particular.
<big> <?php echo $oddcomment; ?> <?php comment_ID() ?> <strong>.</strong> <?php comment_author_link() ?></big> <small><a href="#comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>" title=""><?php comment_date('F jS, Y') ?> at <?php comment_time() ?><?php edit_comment_link(' <strong>Edit Comment</strong>','',''); ?></a></small> <?php comment_text() ?>
Thank you for your help, I greatly appreciate any feedback you can offer!
