Recent Comments Widget For Blogger

The Recent Comments Widget for Blogger displays the recent blog comments on your blog's sidebar, showing a snippet of the last comments along with the title of the post to which the comment was made and the list will be gathered in descending order (newest at the top).

This gadget is coded in Javascript and styled with CSS but I didn't add too much style to it, so that it could fit the colour scheme of your blogger template.
Parameters which can be configured:
    Number of comments: total number of comments to display
    Date on which the comment has been published: either display or hide it
    Posts on which a comment has been made: you can either hide the post titles or show them
    Number of words per comment excerpt: The first "n'' words of the comment will be listed
      To add the Recent Comment Widget to your Blogger blog is very easy.  Just follow the next steps below:


      How To Add Recent Comments Widget to Blogger


      Step 1. Login to your Blogger Dashboard, select your blog - go to Layout and click the Add a Gadget link




      Step 2. From the pop-up window, scroll down and choose the HTML/JavaScript option:



      Step 3. Copy and paste the below code in the HTML/JavaScript box:
      <script style=text/javascript src="http://helplogger.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/recent comments widget.js"></script><script style=text/javascript >var a_rc=5;var m_rc=false;var n_rc=true;var o_rc=100;</script><script src=http://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default?alt=json-in-script&callback=showrecentcomments ></script><style type=text/css> .rcw-comments a {text-transform: capitalize;} .rcw-comments {border-bottom: 1px dotted; padding-top: 7px!important; padding-bottom: 7px!important;}</style>

      Step 4. Obviously, you need to replace http://your-blog-name.blogspot.com/ with your blog address.

      Other settings:
      - To change the number of comments that are being displayed, replace the "5" value from a_rc=5
      - If you want to add the date on which the comment has been made, then change the "false" statement from m_rc=false to "true"
      - If you want to hide the post titles, then change the "true" statement from n_rc=true to "false"
      - And finally, to show more or less comment characters, change the "100" value from o_rc=100

      Step 5. Click Save and you're done.

      Hope you'll enjoy it!

      6. Since installing your widget a few days ago (at http://skyvington.blogspot.com), I've had two cases of a spurious link introduced into posts listed by your widget. See, for example, the link attached to the word "English" in the second paragraph of the post at http://skyvington.blogspot.fr/2012/05/is-bible-good-english-literature.html

        Could there be a link between your widget and these spurious links?

      35. Hi

        I have been using the widget for about 8 months or so; GREAT! I changed from the 5 comments to 35 comments. All 35 comments were showing for several months - not sure how long. Just noticed today that it is no longer showing 35 comments but now only showing 25 comments. The HTML is STILL showing it as 35 programmed, so WHY is only 25 appearing? I notice that the date I have in the script is 2012/03:

        helplogger.blogspot.com/2012/03/recent-comments-widget-for-blogger.html

        Does it now need to be changed to 2013?

        Now my question: is this code working with those blogspot users using google+ comments on their blogspot instead the default ones?
        I hope so, if no, does someone know where can I find a "Recent comments" for blogspot based on google+ version for blogger?

      59. Hi, I have had this gadget in my blog for several months and it have worked totally fine I am very satisfied. But the last week it comes and goes as it wants and now for the past two days it is totally gone. I have not made any changes in the code, the design or anything else during this time.
        I have tried it again with a new html window, I have tried the other reccent comments codes you have here without avatar. None of them is working. The one you have with avatar is the only one that is working fine, but I didn't want that one since it don't show which blogpost that have the posted comment.

        Is there something else I can try?

        By the way, your blog is awesome and I am glad that I find your site. Thank you.
