A Widget for Brian’s Latest Comments

Just a short note to fellow WordPress bloggers who may be using Brian’s Latest Comments to display the most recent conversation on their blog: I put together a widget for Brian’s Latest Comments which will allow anyone using sidebar widgets to more easily work Brian’s Latest Comments into their sidebar content.

The code is posted on the Thesis support forums, but it should work with any theme; put the code into your theme’s [code]functions.php[/code] file, and you’re all set. Visit the widgets manager to find a full-featured widget with all the options you should need.

This is the product of late-night coding, and I’m not going to claim that there aren’t bugs. I just wanted to put it out there and see who finds it useful. (And yes, it is what is displaying the “Conversation” section in my sidebar here.)

  1. dewaji: I’d suggest contacting the author of Brian’s Latest Comments for something like that. The widget I put together for it doesn’t modify the actual plugin at all — it simply makes it easier to use in a blog’s sidebar.

  2. The plugin seems to be very useful as I installed in on my website. I used Drupal for some time because of its flexibility, portability and configurability. However, WordPress is very straightforward to use and just fine for most scenarios. The latest comments widget is what I’ve been looking for after migrating from Drupal.
