wp_defer_comment_counting()WP 2.5.0

Determines whether to defer comment counting.

When setting $defer to true, all post comment counts will not be updated until $defer is set to false. When $defer is set to false, then all previously deferred updated post comment counts will then be automatically updated without having to call wp_update_comment_count() after.

No Hooks.

Return

true|false.

Usage

wp_defer_comment_counting( $defer );
$defer(true|false)

Default: null
