Support » Fixing WordPress » Comment Box count off from wp stats

  • Resolved puremood


    Hi – Searched but didn’t find the answer. Hope someone can help.

    My comments are numbered… and that number is not the same as my comment stats located on my dashboard nor is it the same as the number in the wp-stats.php page.

    Was wonderin’ why they don’t match and how I can get them to match?

    Currently, dashboard and wp-stats.php say 906 comments
    Currently, comment box, last commenter says 914

    If anyone can help me get them to match, I’d appreciate it. It isn’t a serious issue but it bugs me. 😉

  • You are showing the comment IDs next to the comments so the mismatch is because of spam comments most likely (or comments that you’ve deleted). Dashboard shows the number of “legitimate” comments, the ID is individual to each comment (even though you delete comments).

    If I showed the comment ID on my blog, the number would be up to 5000 and I have only a bit over 200 legitimate comments 🙂

    Thank you, that’s likely why – I’ve deleted a few spam comments. Thanks 🙂
