    Title For Comments Section

    You might want to have a title above your comments section that includes the number of comments. This example shows how to do that and have all the strings also be translatable.

    <h3>
    printf( _nx( 'One Comment', '%1$s Comments', get_comments_number(), 'comments title', 'textdomain' ), number_format_i18n( get_comments_number() ) );
    </h3>
