I want to make the comment link in the post meta work with Disqus. I found this post, which really helped: https://theme.co/forum/t/disqus-comment-count-link/55195/11
That worked, great - it counts the comments and links to the Disqus comment section. The only problem is, when there are no comments, the post meta now flashes up ‘Leave a comment’ only for a moment and then switches to ‘0 comments’.
‘Leave a comment’ is a bit more inviting and I’d rather not highlight the fact that there are ‘0 comments’ . Which is of course why you coded it that way for the WordPress comments.
What code do I need to get the same behaviour with Disqus please? So that it never says ‘0 comments’, and rather ‘Leave a comment’ when there are no comments?
