Greg’s Show Total Conversations 1.1.9

Author: Greg Mulhauser
WordPress provides a built-in function to display the total number of comments on a given post; this plugin extends that functionality to show the number of separate threaded discussions included within that total. No theme modifications are required

Unzip the plugin archive
Upload the entire folder gregs-show-total-conversations to /wp-content/plugins/
Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
Go to Settings -> Show Total Conversations to configure your preferences


No theme modifications are required to use this plugin — the plugin’s settings page enables you to specify which pages should include a conversation total. If you’d like more flexibility, however, you can call the plugin’s core function directly.

Basic Usage

Just enable the plugin and visit Settings -> Show Total Conversations to configure your preferences.

Advanced Usage

You can show the conversations total by calling the following function directly, preferably wrapped in a conditional which tests whether the function exists (i.e., tests whether the plugin is enabled):

<?php gstc_show_discussions_number_manually(); ?>

This function takes optional parameters specifying your preferred message for zero conversations, one conversation, or more than one conversation. The parameters work exactly like those for the built-in WordPress function comments_number:

<?php gstc_show_discussions_number_manually($zero, $one, $more); ?>

The character % in the parameter $more will be replaced with the conversation total.

Deactivating and Uninstalling

You can deactivate Greg’s Show Total Conversations plugin via the plugins administration page, and your preferences will be saved for the next time you enable it.

However, if you would like to remove the plugin completely, just disable it via the plugins administration page, then select it from the list of recently deactivated plugins and choose “Delete” from the admin menu. This will not only delete the plugin, but will also run a special routine included with the plugin which will completely remove its preferences from the database.

I’ll be maintaining a FAQ at the main information page for the plugin, where it can be updated independently of new releases.
