After upgrading from wp 1.5.2 to wp-2.0 the new version has
stopped counting my comments below the posts.It only shows the
old amount of comments and not the new ones that were added
after upgrading.

For example if there where 4 comments before upgrade
below the post the tag comments_popup_link said ;
After upgrade it still says that there are four comments
even there where new ones added.

I have uploaded the new file and made a test comment.
Nothing changeed.
This does not work correctly even in the adminarea (manage-post-area) only the old
amount of comments shows up next to the post. But in the comment
edit area the comments are really there...

But when re-editing a comment and save it agian the counter starts to work again.

Some old comment plugins like Spam Karma 2 will do this. Repeat: versions of Spam Karma 2 that haven't specifically been updated to be compatable with WP 2.0 WILL mess up your comment counts.

So was SK2 the culprit or is this still a bug?

I submitted a patch for Paged Comment Editing plugin (revision 4608).

Most of WordPress user that using Paged Comment Editing didn't aware this. I'm applying the same patch made to edit-comments.php.

Comment count is still wonky in 2.02. It seems that

<h3 id="comments"><?php comments_number('No Comments', 'One Comment', '% Comments' );?></h3>

in /themes/personal/wp-comments.php doesn't work at all.

The post management area also reports a lot too few comments; it's not a complete loss, but it's bad enough that I've changed the wp-comments.php from comments_number() to "Comments:".

I show comments on the whole blog, including the index and the various archives and categories, as well as on single posts.

Oops, that's themes/personal/comments.php, of course.

Hetta, are you still seeing this issue? Are there additional details to the scenario? Could it related to plugins you have installed?
