I've been working with the new chicago template on my blog and found a workaround for something that was bugging me.
In the footer where I display article information such as article rss feed, last updated date and comment count, my template originally looked like this
[rss logo] | updated: $_article_edited | $_comment_count
...and that looks good while comments are open but if the commenting period expires and no comments were entered, Vine Type will return nothing for $_formatted_comment_count making the output look like this
[rss] | updated: 15 Nov 2007 |
and that "|" at the end was bugging me. So I removed the bar from the template and changed the vinetype.config file for the formatted comment count to look like this:
$formatted_comment_0: | awaiting first comment
$formatted_comment_1: | $_comment_count comment
$formatted_comment_2: | $_comment_count comments
and the config file like this
[rss logo] | updated: $_article_edited $_comment_count
putting the bar into the config file. Now if articles close without comments, no bar appears after the date.
