Hello fellow WordPressers!
I'm trying to get a "recent comments" area in my sidebar to look like the new comments snapshot in the wp2.5 dashboard.
Essentially the first comment should have an excerpt, and then beneath it, the next 4 comments, only showing author name and link to the post, offset by one (the comment shown first).
Normally I would accomplish this by using two mini-loops, but I've found that those slow down the page load, and considering this is in the sidebar (every page), I don't think thats acceptable.
Another catch is that the theme I'm working on lives in a WPmu install, so certain plugins might not work.
Short of that, do any of you have tips or suggestions? I tried lifting the code from the admin section of wp2.5, but it wasn't compatible (go figure!).
Thanks in advance for your time!
