Creates functions to assist in displaying a list of the most recent comments.
You may pass parameters when calling the function to configure some of the options. Parameters are accepted only in the query-string-style.
In addition to the parameters that get_comments() and
get_most_recent_comments() (see below) accept, this function accepts the following parameters:
excerpt_words-- The number of words from the comment to display
excerpt_chars-- Or alternately the number of characters from the comment to display
comment_format-- Allows you to pick from two predefined display formats:
<?php list_most_recent_comments( 'excerpt_words=5' ); ?>
A more powerful version of get_comments(). It accepts the same parameters as well as the following ones:
passworded_posts-- Boolean to control showing comments on passworded posts or not. Defaults to
showpings-- Boolean to control showing pings and trackbacks or not. Defaults to
post_types-- Array of post types to include comments from. Defaults to posts and pages:
array( 'post', 'page' )
post_statuses-- Array of post statuses to include comments from. Defaults to published posts and static pages:
array( 'publish', 'static' )
Arguments should likely be passed as an array instead of a string.
<?php list_most_recent_comments( array( 'showpings' => true, 'post_types' => array( 'post', 'page', 'foobar' ), ) ); ?>
