I manage a wordpress installation that handles quite a bit of traffic. We use WP-Cache and WP Thread Comment and recently, the owner noticed there was 250 comments on 1 post, but only one comment was showing. Here is a screenshot: http://cl.ly/3rtk

All the comments can be seen from the control panel of WP. But I think WP Thread Comment doesn't have enough memory to pull all the comments so it just shows the latest one. Anyone have this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Stack Overflow is for programming questions. Your question is specific to Wordpress administration, and would be better at wordpress.stackexchange.com. – Greg Hewgill Jan 4 '11 at 18:35
are they awaiting moderation? what can you see if you manually query the database? – Robb Jan 4 '11 at 18:36

Was the site showing multiple comments before? Are they in the moderation que or spam que? have you tried refreshing the cache? – Adam Thompson Jan 4 '11 at 20:33

first thing I would do is to deactivate the Cache and see if that makes a difference. If disabling solves the problem, reset the cache for the comments of the particular post.

Probably something went wrong for the caching strategy and it ended up in some useless state.

Goto phpmyadmin and repair the database, your comments should be back.
