Enabling comment count breaks my theme (4 posts)

    I recently enable the combined comment count on my theme and it broke at the php comments number tag. Originally thought that it could be because I have some gettext tags surrounding the count tags, but tried to replace them and it's still broken.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot for this amazing plugin!

    Can you post a link to a page where it's broken please? Or perhaps provide an error message?

    Ask your webhost to install the CURL PHP extension then. :-P It's a common extension and I'm quite surprised it's not already installed.
