[resolved] Comments on older posts (2 posts)

    I love the theme and use it for my writers' group.

    However, after a post drops from the top position, there's no way to tell if anyone is still commenting on it aside from clicking on it. Does anyone know of a way to add a simple "comments(n)" text to the older posts? This would be very helpful since most of out members post on the same day and it's just too easy to think that nobody has replied to a submission...

    I'm pretty fluent in PHP, so even just a good pointer to the right direction would be great. If it's a CSS thing, I may need a little more guidance.

    Thank you in advance for anyone listening.

    Try putting

    <span class="comments-link"><?php comments_popup_link( __( 'Comments (0)', 'erudite' ), __( 'Comments (1)', 'erudite' ), __( 'Comments (%)', 'erudite' ) ) ?></span>

    right after

    <?php the_content( __( 'Read More <span class="meta-nav">&rarr;</span>', 'erudite' ) ) ?>

    in your index.php file. Hope that helps! Unfortunately, you may need to use some CSS to position it and style it how you'd like.
