Use as follows:
<?php comment_type_count('comment'); ?> Regular comments only
<?php comment_type_count('ping'); ?> Pings and Trackbacks combined
<?php comment_type_count('trackback'); ?> Trackbacks only
<?php comment_type_count('pingback'); ?> Pingbacks only
<?php comment_type_count('all'); ?> All types (default)
There is also <?php get_comment_type_count('all'); ?> which returns,
instead of echoes (following standard WP convention).
Both can also take an optional post ID as a second argument. By default
it uses the ID of the current post in the loop.
The plugin uses a "smart" cache that'll populate itself the first time
you use the function on a page load. All subsequent requests will come
from the cache and not use up any MySQL queries.
I'll put up a page for this later tonight: it'll be under
Thanks to Skippy for reminding me of this... someone will probably find
