I'm new to WP, but have extensive XHTML/CSS experience and understand basic programming concepts.
What I'd like to do is list the recent comments to my site on the index page. I know that there's a pre-installed widget for this, but that limits me to the sidebar.
I've looked in the documentation, but can't seem to find a way to construct a loop that outputs comments.
Also, is there anyway to view the PHP used to create the default sidebar widgets. That would be a great way to learn.
