I am using the New Yorker Bloody Movie theme with essentially no modifications except the images for the header and footer. I'm a newbie at this, and pretty much totally lacking in knowlege about php. So here's the problem: The left sidebar has code that shows "Welcome to __. There are _ posts and _ comments. This is followed by a section of recent posts, and a section for recent comments.
However the recent comments code seems to be broken, because no links or anything ever appears in that space. Just above it, the links for recent posts work just fine. I'm just too clueless with the code to be able to see the problem.
The blog is at: http://www.southasiafulbrighters.net
I have tried using the sidebar widgets, and although the Recent comments widget works fine when I move it into the left sidebar, and shows the links, it overrides the rest of the sidebar, and doesn't follow the formatting of the rest of the theme. I want the sidebar to visually look like the rest of the site, so this doesn't seem like a good solution.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
