The Comments Widget


I would just like to take this opportunity to thank PalMD, in whose Blogging 101 session I declared Recent Comments to be the single most important widget a blogger can have, and Lou, who sent me a widget that turned out not to work with my template, for getting me off my ass to find a widget I could use. Thanks also to Ben, who tracked down why a simple change in the (unformatted) Javascript to customize said widget made it stop working.

Anybody who wants a recent comments widget that works with the layout function in Blogger templates, just let me know.

    Oh, um. WordPress has this feature built-in….

    I know, Mike, and Blogger has one that works with old style of template, but they haven’t had one for the new style. In fact, it was kind of a pain to find one, which is why I’m sharing.

    I’m glad you got it going. Recent comments really makes a crucial usability difference in a blog.Rock on, Steph.
