Slash Comments


This plugin is now obsolete on account of the functionality being included with WordPress.

This plugin adds the slash:comments tag to RSS feeds, which
tells feed readers such as Google Reader or Bloglines
how many comments there currently are on that post.

A simple plugin, really. It evolved out of a Trac ticket that didn’t get
included into the WordPress core.


  1. Upload slash-comments.php to your wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in the WordPress admin.
  3. Enjoy.
