#2836 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

wp_delete_comment() uses simple comment count decrementation instead of getting a fresh count

Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0.3
Component: General Keywords: has-patch

wp_delete_comment() decrements the comment count for its parent post by subtracting 1 from the current count. This perpetuates errors created by older plugins. It also doesn't jive with comment creation, in which a fresh count is made.

Maybe in a year or two, after plugins have been all updated to use the API functions, we can go back to simple incrementation/decrementation (which is faster, and saves a query), but for now, we should try to minimize comment count errors and do a fresh count on every change.

I'll be uploading patches for trunk and the 2.0 branch shortly.

The patch for the 2.0 branch is simple: instead of blindly decrementing, it does a fresh count, identical to the way it does in wp_insert_comment()

The patch for Trunk is a little more comprehensive. I wrote a new function, wp_update_comment_count() which takes a post ID and does the COUNT() and the UPDATE queries, as well as filling in an entry for the comment count cache array. wp_insert_comment(), wp_delete_comment() and wp_update_comment() have all been edited to use this function.
