Comments app - get comment count per post
I'm using the comments app to add comments to non-blog posts on a site.
I'm using a list-page and detail-page structure and each of the 'details' can have comments.
Is there any easy way of getting and showing the comment count for each post in a list page?
The only solution I've found is to use skip-template on the posts and then iterate through each one checking for comments - which seems cumbersome.
