    I am attempting to show the comment text without having the comment box also appear below each post that has comments. How can I best do that? The site is handlingtruth.com

    so, for a post without comments, you want the comment box to show?

    and as soon there is a comment, you want the comment text to show but no comment box?

    where are further comments supposed to come from?

    No, for a post without comments I want only the Reply link so someone could leave a comment. For those with comments (the client) would like the text of those comments to show as well as a Reply link but no comment box on the home page. The link would take them to the comment box.

    I suppose a comment box could appear on posts that do have comments rather than a reply link. I had previously used info from these links to show comments on the home page, but that put a comment box below every post. The client didn't like that.
