[resolved] Display list of recently commented on posts (3 posts)

    Dear all,

    I searched the Forum and Google but could not find a solution to what I am looking for:

    I want to display the last 5 posts that were commented on. Not the last 5 comments, the last 5 posts that people commented on. That way the same post would not show up twice if two people commented on the same post within the last 5 comments.

    In addition I'd like to show the name of the commenter and the comment count. I guess that's the smaller problem, but does anybody know how I can display the last 5 posts that were commented on?

    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks a lot,
    Martin

    Just installed this plugin:
    http://coffee2code.com/wp-plugins/customizable-post-listings/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/customizable-post-listings/

    Put this in theme's sidebar.php:

    <?php
    if(function_exists('c2c_get_recently_commented')) {
    c2c_get_recently_commented();
    }
    ?>

    Perfect! Thanks a lot!

    I actually used the following code in order to not display the time of the comment but the commenters name in addition.

    <?php
    c2c_get_recently_commented(5, "<li>%comments_URL%<br />%comments_fancy%<br />%last_commenter%</li>");
    ?>
