I would like to show comment count IN the post (not in post meta), is there a snippet how to do this or a wordpress internal shortcode?

    Do you mean to display it in the post's content? Please show the current relevant code that you've tried so far, thanks. – birgire Apr 5 '17 at 8:27

function my_comment_count($content) {

    $content .= get_comments_number(get_the_ID());

    return $content;

  • Please, explain why this helps the OP instead of just posting the code. Thanks. – kaiser Apr 5 '17 at 13:24

Please add the following code into your theme's functions.php

    add_shortcode( 'comment_no', 'commno' );
    function commno(){

        $number= get_comments_number(get_the_ID());

        return $number;

and then you can use shortcode [comment_no] to display number of comments where you like.
