    I have a number of blogs. I am trying to create an index page showing:

    1. Recent comments
    2. Last updated (in order)
    3. Recent posts

    Anyone know of any plugin (or tutorial) that can do this?

    1. There's a default widget that can do this in Appearance -> Widgets.
    2. Published or updated?
    3. See (1)

    All you really need to do to achieve 1 & 3 is to widgetize your theme's index.php template file.

    Sorry, I didn't explain clearly. I have a number of blogs on different WordPress sites. e.g.

    http://www.myfirstblog.com
    http://www.myotherblog.com
    http://www.mythirdblog.com

    Regarding #2, I just need to show when the site was last updated, so when last edited/posted on.

    So you want to show the recent comments, posts etc from all sites on one specific site? If yes, are these sites part of a multisite install?

    Yes, that's exactly what I want to do.

    No they are not part of a multisite.

    You could use the native RSS widget in Appearance -> Widgets to pull in the latest posts and comments from the other sites. But there's nothing pre-existing that I know of that will handle the latest updated posts from external sites.
