You can customize the text for displaying the number of comments inside the loop. This is just a simple template edit but it’s very useful if you’re creating a theme that is not a traditional theme or you wanted to inject a little bit of personality into the site.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s single.php file:

    echo get_comments_number_text( "No comments, yet", "One Lonely Comment", "% Happy Comments");
