Always display the comment link

Description

I don't understand why the comment link is disabled for single posts. Considering that most of my traffic actually comes from folks viewing single posts (via RSS, Yahoo! or pingbacks), not giving them a way to comment about anything is just silly.
Besides, the folks reading my blog are usually more interesting than I am.

So I've created a quick patch to allow folks to always display the comment link if they so choose:

wp-includes/comment-functions.php
Line:95

if (ALWAYS_DISPLAY_COMMENT_LINK
(! is_single() && ! is_page())) { -- jrc

this should be added to the next wordpress core
however.. it would be better, if the admin has the chance to select, where the links should be shown..

  • single
  • search
  • archive
  • ..

The whole point of comments_popup_link() is to provide a direct link to comments from an index or archive view to a single post's comments. Single pages don't need a popup to the comments page, unless the template author specifically wants to craft that.
