It seems the latest update breaks the comment counts in the meta of a single post. And all the existing tricks don’t work — they only work for the meta of the archive. Basically, I’d like to have the meta in this format:
[Date] • Writer • Comment count (the first two are already there like in the post below.)
1. The comment count only appears on the archive page, not in a single post.
2. On the archive page, it shows in two places, below the Headline and also below the excerpt. When I turn off “Display comment count” using the Layout Customization then it disappears in both.
