Automatically adjust for daylight saving time

    Another vote for this from me.

    I actually just noticed this was an issue since I only post on my blog every week or two and don't pay close attention to the post time. It surprised me that this just didn't work even though my server handles DST just fine. I have to say, though, that my surprise was short lived when I remembered all the times in the past I had to think carefully of how to implement DST as a PHP developer.

    You were unduly harsh and borderline rude. You're right that you're entitled to your opinion, but this is a world with more people than *just you*.

    Finally, I agree that it might be a minor matter, but it's also a nice feature to have. On some installations, a plugin would work, but not all. And it becomes a tedious task when you have more than a few WP installations running in the same timezone to update.

    It may not be easy for WP to implement, however, it should be considered closely.

    The time zone and date stamp is often confusing so I would love to see it improved. Specifically, a better drop down or Ajax suggest menu so you can enter the nearest largest city or country and then it gives you options. I can never remember how many hours off from GMT I am at any point in my travels, and who the hell knows most of the time anyway. So I have to play with it when starting a new blog, trying to figure out which one it is.

    Time changes are being rescheduled all over the world, for intelligent and stupid, greedy reasons, so making changing the time zone and time settings easier would help a majority of users, not just a few.

    I think this is a good idea.

  6. Widget for the WordPress 2.5+ dashboard to display the latest comments.

    WordPress 2.5 introduces a widgetized dashboard featuring the latest comments and WordPress news.

    This plugin creates a new widget for that dashboard that lists out the latest comments.

    Updgrading From A Previous Version

    To upgrade from a previous version of this plugin, delete the entire folder and files from the previous version of the plugin and then follow the installation instructions below. Or just use the 'Automatic upgrade' feature

    Installing The Plugin

    Extract all files from the ZIP file, making sure to keep the file structure intact, and then upload it to /wp-content/plugins/.

    This should result in the following file structure:

    - wp-content
        - plugins
            - dashboard-recent-comments-extended
                | dashboard-recent-comments-extended.php
                | readme.txt

    Then just visit your admin area and activate the plugin.

    See Also: "Installing Plugins" article on the WP Codex

    Using The Plugin

    The new widget will show up automatically on your dashboard. If you use Dashboard Widget Manager plugin and have specified a custom widget order, you will need to visit it's management page and add this new widget to your dashboard.

    Does this plugin support other languages?

    Yes, it does. See the WordPress Codex for details on how to make a translation file. Then just place the translation file, named dashboard-recent-comments-extended-[value in wp-config].mo, into the plugin's folder.
