Recent Comments for WordPress 1.2 / 1.5 (5 posts)

    I don’t understand why people like to have recent comments shows the comment text instead of the post title.

    My recent comment plugin display in format of nick @ topic. Nick will link to comment author website(if submited), topic will link to the comment permalink, AND mouseover to preview the comment text!

    (Note: not my original code, I merely modify the code to suit my need. Hope this is useful for some.)

    Coffee2code has a similar plugin which is very customisable.

    All I want to do is add a "recent comments" and "recent posts" field to my sidebar, but I'm a neo-phyte and WordPress is scaring the BeeJeezus out of me...

    Everything is confusing me: How to install a plug-in to my "plug-ins," and any other changes to the other files...is there is step-by-step guide on "Installing and activating Plug-ins for Idiots?"

    In general, you upload (via FTP) the plugin into wp-content/plugins, and then log in to the WP admin panel, go to Plugins, and activate it there.

    This is in addition to modifications you may need to make to other files (e.g., index.php); for instance, adding the Recent Comments code to your template.
