I am trying to understand the meaning of the number of discussion count
on the lefhand side of the page on this forum e.g. on this link
as of now it says 1 discussion and 12 comments.
Before you answer the question automatically. count the number of initiated discussions and the number of comments. There must be some logic somewhere - but my illogical mind can't find a real pattern unless it means one discussion without a comment.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
