I could try template tags but this can only parse and display comments from the page on which it is displayed and as such is not really what I am after.
Can anyone recommend a good, free recent comments widget that will properly function as a true recent comments widget – as in comments on old and archived posts will show up and the recent comments won’t all vanish periodically?
I have installed a functional recent comments widget and it works and the best part was it was the least complex and quickest one I tried. It is a true recent comments widget in that it really does show the most recent comments first and it shows comments from posts that are archived – I tested it by commenting on our very first blog post and it showed up. So yay for Blogger Buster!
