Yeah, I’d been noticing it over the last few days that the count of comments for the posts was incorrect. And it was consistently missing out later posts. 😐 I was unsure if the ‘bug’ existed in WordPress or it was due to the theme that I use (if that mattered).
I first thought, it probably didn’t count posts by the same person – or by the author… but that theory didn’t match for every post.
Googl’ing for the problem resulted in top 2-3 results which were tangential to my issue. So avoided that.
Tried some typical tricks… and finally, got the solution/”fix” for it: Just edit the comment for a post whose comment count is incorrect. You can simply add some character and delete it back, and then save it (Update Comment). You’ll now see that the count is corrected! 🙂
God bless the WordPress programmers! They’re doing an awesome job – albeit some bugs (they’re kinda obvious, in software development). 🙂
