Support » Fixing WordPress » Comments Not Listed on Index Page, Incorrect display on post page

  • Here’s an odd comments problem.

    My blog is at Around the time I upgraded to a 2.0RC a while ago (I’m now on 2.0), and just after I had someone create a new .htaccess file for me to redirect feeds to feedburner (the plug-in wouldn’t work for me), I noticed that the summary under post titles on my index page

    eg: “#| 2005/12/29-10:10 pm | Law – Technology | Trackback | No Comments »”

    wouldn’t state the correct number of comments – always “No comments”, instead of the correct number.

    And on the post page, ” No Responses to [post title]” but then all of the comments for that post.

    The problem occurs for every theme. Oddly, some older posts don’t have the problem – the last post to do it correctly was Dec 17. Don’t know how that date is significant.

    My .htaccess file reads:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /

    RewriteRule ^archives\.php /archives/ [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/rdf/ [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/rss/ [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/atom/ [R,L]
    RewriteRule ^feed/ [R,L]

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php

    # END WordPress

    Any ideas?

  • There seems to be a bug with 2.0 properly representing comments for some people. See here for quite a few others with the same problem.

    same with mine.

    I’ve been having problems lately with my new entries, as the number of comments do not appear correctly in my blog,

    I overwrited my comments.php file with the original one but to no avail, it still does not display the correct comment count. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Those fixes didn’t work for me, but they did lead me to the new beta version of Spam Karma (2.1). I installed the new version and then edited (without changing) all comments that were not recognized and each is now being counted properly.

    Thanks for recommending the upgrade to SK 2.1 beta, that did the trick.
