Comment Count – Display count on posts with zero (0) comments

    This blog has the premium theme Linen.

    The comment count seems to only show up whenever there are more than zero comments. How can I force this theme to display the comment count whenever the posts have just been made and there are no comments yet?

    The reason for this is because you can’t actually create a reply to a blog post until you click on the blog post title and it takes you to the post page which has a reply box. For people unfamiliar with blogging they won’t naturally know to do this, and always having the comments link right there will be easier.

    I do not have the custom CSS option but can write CSS if I need to buy that option.

    The blog I need help with is



    re: collapsed comments front page
    Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, know that the front pages of our blogs “showcase” content that means comments are collapsed on that page and you cannot change this. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    If you wish you can post a text widget and include text to tell visitors to click post titles or comment links so the full posts display on their own page.

    re: premium theme Linen (The comment count seems to only show up whenever there are more than zero comments.)
    Your theme is a premium theme and read-access to the premium themes forum is now open to all users so you can search to see if your question has been previously asked and answered there. The premium theme forums are at with separate sections for each theme.

    If you are not successful when searching there is a link for the specific Premium Theme support forum for your theme under Appearance -> Themes in your blog’s Dashboard, but do note that the premium theme must be active and you must be signed in as the user who purchased it in order to see it and post to it.
