[Resolved] Avatars in sidebar with Recent Comments

  • Can anybody suggest a good tutorial on making this happen? My theme isn’t set up for it and I would love to make this happen.

  • I just visited your site, and I saw you already have some gravatars there. What tutorial do you actually need? Sadish’s free themes such as Mistylook that I used in my site already have gravatar in sidebar. I wrote my experience setting up gravatar using Sadish Mistylook theme at this posting. At least it gives my visitors the link to gravatar site. I came across this one, Is your avatar a gravatar? through the links on gravatar site.

    Well, I kept hunting and hunting and eventually found the get recent comments plug in. I installed that code and then tweaked it and I ma good to go now. Thanks!

    If you are using Lester Chan’s plugin. Use this

    <?php echo get_avatar('get_recent_comments','35','' ); ?> <?php get_recent_comments(); ?>

    Here is the full of it, if you have added nothing to the sidebar.
    `<?php if (function_exists(‘get_recent_comments’)) { ?>

  • <h2><?php _e(‘Recent Comments’); ?></h2>

      <?php echo get_avatar(‘get_recent_comments’,’35’,” ); ?> <?php get_recent_comments(); ?>
  • <?php } ?>

<?php if (function_exists('get_recent_comments')) { ?>
   <li>
<h2><?php _e('Recent Comments'); ?></h2>
        <ul>
        <?php echo get_avatar('get_recent_comments','35','' ); ?> <?php get_recent_comments(); ?>
        </ul>
   </li>

   <?php } ?>

What file is this supposed to be in, functions.php? I have added the code to comments.php and I have it showing on the page but not in my sidebar. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@magcrossin – You’ll need to add it to your sidebar.php file to get it in your sidebar.
