Widgets »Recent Comments Widget

The Recent Comments Widget is a sidebar tool that displays the most recent comments readers have left on your blog.

Here’s an example of what it looks like:

Once you add the widget to your sidebar from Appearance -> Widgets, you’ll see that the widget settings look like this:

Title
Set the title that will display above the recent comments area in your sidebar. (i.e. Recent Comments, What Readers Are Saying, etc.)

Number of comments to show
How many of the recent comments you would like the widget to display. The maximum you can show is 15.

Avatar size (px)
Set the display size of the avatars or choose not to show avatars at all. (Avatars must be set to display in the Discussion Settings for this to work.)

Avatar background color (Optional)
Background color to use for the avatars. This value should be either a hexadecimal color, like #000 for black or #fff for white or the name of a color, like yellow or blue.

Text background color (Optional)
Background color to use for the text. This value should be either a hexadecimal color, like #000 for black or #fff for white or the name of a color, like yellow or blue.
