    I'm trying to make the plugin" get recent comments" from http://blog.jodies.de/archiv/2004/11/13/recent-comments/ work. I do everything described in the page, but when I active my plugin, I have got no Admin GUI in Options/Recent Comments. And the plugin doesn't work (nothing appears in my sidebar even thought I have past the code as said in the page), in fact this isn't the first problem with plugins that I have, have tried a lot of them and none of them are working..so I think I'm the one who is doing wrong but I don't know what...is it possible that I have a problem with my Mysql data base, a host problem?? Please help me I'm blocked....

    Are you on 1.5? Maybe that plugin isn't compatible? How about trying a different recent comments?

    I tried http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser/recent-comments/...I put it in the wp-content/plugins directory, and it doesn't appear in the list to activate....When I past in my sidebar theme "<?php mdv_recent_comments(); ?>
    " (as said in the readme file). I get this on my blog: Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mdv_recent_comments() in /usr/export/www/vhosts/funnetwork/hosting/miranda/wp-content/themes/default/sidebar.php on line 50.............and yes I'm using wordpress 1.5 and I have checked the version of recent comments it is for wordpress 1.5!!!

    http://blog.jodies.de/archiv/2004/11/13/recent-comments/ and http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser/recent-comments/ are two completely different plugins. It sounds like you are using the file from the first link and following the instructions from the 2nd. By the way, the 2nd is one of my plugins.

    If you want to use the 2nd, make sure to download the latest version, upload it, activate the plugin, and then add <?php mdv_recent_comments(); ?> where you want the output to appear.

    The error you are getting means that WP can't find that function...most likely because you are using the code from the other plugin called "Get Recent Comments" and mine is called "Recent Comments". Why that plugin author didn't come up with an original name or ask to merge the code with mine is beyond me!

    No I wasn't doing that...I know wich plugin I am using and I tried the 2 and followed each instruction(and instruction wich goes with each plugin!)!!! Anyway I manage to make it work with adding an include....so now it works...but it isn't really normal to have to do this...please don't say I was following the wrong instruction...I did each time the instruction wich goes with the plugin..!!!never mind managed to make it work... (p.s it does not work without the line <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/recent_comments.php'); ?> and I put the plugin in the same file that the theme....really not good solution but if I don't do this it does not work...)

    I had a similar problem with http://blog.jodies.de/archiv/2004/11/13/recent-comments/

    It turns out the plugin requires you be logged in as Admin (user level 10) to access its options subpanel. Either tweak the plugin to allow a lower user (look for the add_options_page call and change the 10 to an 8, say), or just change the settings as Admin.

    Don't know if that's your problem, Miranda, but it was mine.
