    I am attempting to get a listing of all of the published NewsItems and the comments that have been posted in regards to them. I am returning all of the published NewsItems with the code below. However when I loop through the NewsItems the Comments.Count for the items are always zero. I have verified that there are many NewsItems that have published comments.

    As a side note I have also italicized and bolded a typo I have found when using the fluent API

    Public Shared Function GetAllNewsFluent() As IQueryable(Of NewsItem)
            Return App.WorkWith().NewsItems().Publihed().[Get]()
    End Function

    Dim AllSitefinityNewsItems = GetAllNewsFluent()

    For Each item As NewsItem In AllSitefinityNewsItems
                Dim curNewsLink As New NewsLink
                curNewsLink.strURL = item.Urls(0).Url
                curNewsLink.intShares = item.Comments.Count

                If curNewsLink.intShares > 0 Then
                End If

    Hi Tony,

    Please find attached a sample template which counts the number of comments for blog post programatically and displays them in a Literal control on the frontend, I hope you find it useful.

    Kind regards,
