I am having trouble getting the number of comments to show up with the comment tag: `< ?php $my_var = get_comments_number( $post_id ); ?>`
The code is found here: codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/get_comments_number
Is `$post_id` an actual variable that will output a string? I thought it was just saying that to get the information, you are required to have the ID of the post. There is a way to get it but I’m not sure how. I think it’s something like `$post=>ID`.
