  1. I love thematic!....I'm trying to separate my trackbacks from showing up in my comments. I've found a few suggestions online advising how to change commments.php code to place trackbacks in a separate list after comments but they are for earlier versions of wordpress and the coding is a little different. Thanks.

  2. Hi May,

    don't understand what you're trying to do. Comments and tracksbacks are already in two separate lists. Could you please give me some more details?

  3. Not sure what the initial poster had in mind, but I have a trackback vs. comment separation issue. They do appear separately. However, the (feedburner) RSS comment feed is showing trackbacks in addition to the other comments. I would like the RSS comment feed to only show the comments, not the trackbacks. What do I change to make this happen - something in comments.php, feedburner setup, wordpress settings . . . or somewhere else?

  4. Another related issue is that my home page lists x comments, where x is the number of trackbacks + the number of comments. When there is 1 trackback and zero comments, it is confusing as it will say 1 comment, the user clicks on comments, and then sees no comments. Someone reported it to me as a bug last night.

    Desired behavior: Number of comments should list number of comments alone (don't include trackbacks in the total)

  6. Thanks for creating a ticket on this. I've stopped displaying track backs but will turn it back on when the issue is resolved.

    On a related point, and fixing a personal bugbear, inserting this into style.css removes the list of Trackbacks from the individual post page

    #trackbacks-list {
    display: none;

    Now visitors don't have to scroll past a huge list of trackbacks to get to the 'post your comment' box.
