    Hey Everyone,

    I have a code to show the latest comments in a widget on the front page of my site. I want to add the users picture on to the info being generated, unfortunately i cant figure it out i was hoping to get some help.

    Thanks

    <?php
    	global $wpdb;
    	$sql = "SELECT DISTINCT ID, post_title, post_password, comment_ID,
    	comment_post_ID, comment_author, comment_date_gmt, comment_approved,
    	comment_type,comment_author_url,
    	SUBSTRING(comment_content,1,30) AS com_excerpt
    	FROM $wpdb->comments
    	LEFT OUTER JOIN $wpdb->posts ON ($wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID =
    	$wpdb->posts.ID)
    	WHERE comment_approved = '1' AND comment_type = '' AND
    	post_password = ''
    	ORDER BY comment_date_gmt DESC
    	LIMIT 10";
    	$comments = $wpdb->get_results($sql);
    	$output = $pre_HTML;
    	$output .= "\n<ul>";
    
    	foreach ($comments as $comment) {
    
    	$output .= "\n<li>".strip_tags($comment->comment_author)
    	.":" . "<a href=\"" . get_permalink($comment->ID) .
    	"#comment-" . $comment->comment_ID . "\" title=\"on " .
    	$comment->post_title . "\">" . strip_tags($comment->com_excerpt)
    	."</a></li>";
    
    	}
    	$output .= "\n</ul>";
    	$output .= $post_HTML;
    	echo $output;?>

    Change $sql = "..." to the following:

    $sql = "SELECT DISTINCT ID, post_title, post_password, comment_ID,
    	comment_post_ID, comment_author, comment_date_gmt, comment_approved,
    	comment_type, comment_author_url, comment_author_email
    	SUBSTRING(comment_content,1,30) AS com_excerpt
    	FROM $wpdb->comments
    	LEFT OUTER JOIN $wpdb->posts ON ($wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID =
    	$wpdb->posts.ID)
    	WHERE comment_approved = '1' AND comment_type = '' AND
    	post_password = ''
    	ORDER BY comment_date_gmt DESC
    	LIMIT 10";

    I've added to fetch the comment author's email address and you can output their Gravatar using echo get_avatar($comment->comment_author_email);

    Check out the documentation for get_avatar() for other parameters.
