I am trying to find a recent comments widget that will display on the main pages like the ones on this blog- http://fatgirlonadate.wordpress.com/. I've tried the one that comes with my theme I am using (WhitePlus), and I've tried the Get Recent Comments one. The default one on this theme does not support gravatars, and Get Recent Comments, although it says it does, they do not show up and the formatting isn't very pretty. I also noticed that any changes to the formatting would result in half of the code not being rendered correctly. (Yes, I have double and even triple checked my input and it was correct) When it was in use (briefly) I had gravatars set to show any up to R, but nothing showed up. Not even the grey-scale image that it defaults to when there's none uploaded.
I am running WordPress 2.7.
Any suggestions of a widget that will do this? I've asked the blog owner what widget she is using but have gotten no reply as of yet.
