Do you want to get all comments and display the count on your WordPress page? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display the total number of comments in WordPress.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s single.php file or where you want to show the total number of comments or in a site-specific plugin:
<?php $numcom = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(*) FROM $wpdb->comments WHERE comment_approved = '1'"); if (0 < $numcom) $numcom = number_format($numcom); ?>
Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly add code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
