Recent Comments Widget For Blogspot Users

by Ankur Jain on September 25, 2008

Releasing the Recent Comments widget for blogspot/blogger users.

How is it different from the other Recent Comments widget?

The problem with other widgets is that the source code for them lies with the widget author and the authors often integrate it in within their own site. If because of some problem their site is down, the recent comments widget will not work.

Here, I am releasing the source code so that the logic would reside within your blog itself and hence you can do away with dependency on 3rd party site not under your control.

How to install Recent Comments widget for blogger?

  1. Login to the blogger dashboard.
  2. Go to ‘Page Elements’ tab page elements
  3. Click on Add a Gadget. Select HTML/Javascript widget type. image
  4. Now this is the most important step. Select the whole code given below and paste it in the widget box you have just opened above.









































































  5. Scroll down to src=http://xyz.blogspot.com and replace xyz with your blog’s name. For example if your blog’s URL is http://abc.blogspot.com then the code should become src=http://abc.blogspot.com DO NOT TOUCH any other part of the code or else it might create problems.
  6. You are done! Lastly please do not remove the footer credits*.

Please let me know if you face any problem implementing the code above.

*The code is released under the condition that footer credits should remain intact.

Created a widget to show blogger label co-occurance as a silverlight dynamic tag cloud

Daren November 8, 2008 at 8:31 PM

I have added the link but no comments are coming up on it???

Daren November 8, 2008 at 8:39 PM

It’s OK I sorted it!!! Thanks!!!

Frances November 13, 2008 at 7:27 PM

Thanks so much – finally a great-looking comments widget that works on my complicated template.

SearchingWellness December 19, 2008 at 11:53 AM

Many thanks for this! This is the only recent comment widget that works! Keep up the good work.

Gennita December 20, 2008 at 6:09 AM

I’m not sure whether it’s my site or Blogger, but all the Recent Comments widgets I’ve been trying just post comments from September and nothing recent. This started sometime early this morning EST and I have no idea how to solve it. I uninstalled my old one and installed yours, hoping that it being JS on my site would take care of the problem, but to no avail. But it’s still just showing Sept. comments! Can you help, please?

Rhoda December 22, 2008 at 2:41 AM

Same problem as Gennita. This just started a couple of days ago & all the Recent Comment widgets I have tried are all pulling comments from January 2008. I would love to fix this ASAP. None of the widgets seem to be working properly & I see I’m not the only one with the problem.

ROW December 22, 2008 at 10:17 AM

@Gennita and Rhoda:
Have you followed the exacts steps as above? I just saw my test installation again, it is working perfect. Moreover you can check other bloggers who have commented above (like http://ky-justanotherstupidblog.blogspot.com/) for them also the widget is working fine.

Please try it out again.

Gennita December 28, 2008 at 5:39 AM

Hi ROW,
It seems that there are a bunch of bloggers with this problem. See the following thread on blogger forum:

http://groups.google.com/group/blogger-help-troubleshoot/browse_thread/thread/b5d9c0bff84c4694/62311f0d80cf3f8e

We’re all waiting for some kind of update but it being the holidays, maybe the techies are skiing in Aspen or something ;-).

Taz January 4, 2009 at 8:26 PM

Finally one that works!! Thank u!

ROW January 5, 2009 at 12:59 PM

@Taz: Welcome!

@Gennita: I looked into it again. The code is fine. It seems Google has recently messed up with comments feed and some of the blogspot bloggers are affected due to this. [http://knownissues.blogspot.com/2008/12/comments-feed-not-updating-1562053.html] I think the best way out is to ‘wait-and-watch’ till blogger team issue a fix.

Having said that, for some blogs(like one of mine and some others who commented above) it is still working perfect.

gapsky January 27, 2009 at 8:43 PM

thx a lot.
it’s so useful

kouretinho March 2, 2009 at 8:16 PM

thanx mate. Great easy-to-use widget! Made my day

Dalina April 20, 2009 at 1:26 AM

Thanks for the widget!!
I would like to know how I can change the Font and font size
Any help?

La Huerita April 21, 2009 at 3:07 AM

Thanks for this, it’s great! I have one problem with it: When you click on the “More” link it takes you to the post connected to the comment, not to the comment itself. Is there a way to fix this so the link goes directly to the comment?

Aditi May 2, 2009 at 3:14 PM

It’s working fine. Thank you for this widget. God bless.

Eskapisminda May 7, 2009 at 3:50 PM

Hi, how do I adjust the comments to ONLY showing the title not the snippets of content? thanks

ROW May 8, 2009 at 9:47 PM

@Eska: You “ll need to delete a chunk of code. Remind me if you’re not able to do this on your own.

French Tutoring May 8, 2009 at 9:44 PM

Yes that worked! Thanks so much. Now if only I can find a Recent Posts widget that works!

ROW May 8, 2009 at 9:46 PM

@French Tutoring: Help is not far away. I have created a Recent Posts widget as well http://reviewofweb.com/blogging/recent-posts-blogspot-widget/

Jack May 13, 2009 at 12:58 PM

Thanks for the information:)

ROW May 13, 2009 at 1:20 PM

Welcome Jack!

bent May 19, 2009 at 8:32 AM

Hello & thanks for this widget ! I just started using your of widget and am impressed by the quality of the code.

ROW May 19, 2009 at 12:17 PM

Thanks bent!

kurt May 30, 2009 at 10:05 PM

thanks man appreciated..! works!

thank you for your tutorial

Questions August 19, 2009 at 12:14 PM

Variables cannot be passed to this function. Is there a way around this?

Pantorijn August 30, 2009 at 4:21 AM

Thanks. Great widget. However I had to customized it to Dutch. Thanks again.

BEBEN October 19, 2009 at 9:43 PM

I think this feature was provided by the blogger in collaboration with the feed. Go to add the widget and select add recent comments. BTW … this is one good hack. Thank’s before and share U am waiting ur next post…hohohoho

Surccero November 10, 2009 at 11:50 PM

Thanks this script is what I needed.

Cerebration December 22, 2009 at 9:34 AM

THANK YOU!!! I’ve been trying to fix my lost comments for days! We were using an RSS feed – but it’s just not the same. I pasted your code – changed the xyz to my blog name and – Your widget worked perfectly! I really appreciate it!

SnookeromAnka February 1, 2010 at 11:04 AM

Finally it works. Thanks!

ecky February 2, 2010 at 3:29 PM

it works,
thanks ,but the title-comment is the link of the post right?how if the title of the post changed?

ROW February 3, 2010 at 11:38 AM

It should then change accordingly.

Tech Review February 3, 2010 at 5:49 PM

Great coding. I was really looking for this. Can you tell me how to remove comments from widget? Like in your website. I want to show only post name and commenter name. Thanks

ROW February 4, 2010 at 2:36 PM

if you have some knowledge of javascript, you can edit those lines of code yourself.

Net Success February 11, 2010 at 7:10 AM

Great plugin, I am just beginning to get familiar with blogger and blogspot. Very powerful blogging tools.

Zephyr February 18, 2010 at 11:10 AM

Hey, I want to say great works (cos it’s the only recent comments gadget which is working on my blogger blog and all others messed up with my existing format).

My little problem is that the link doesn’t show the “title” of my blog post but just said “blog post”. Is there a way to get around this problem? Many thanks.

TRISH February 22, 2010 at 5:49 PM

it’s a great widget but I have a question

TRISH February 22, 2010 at 5:49 PM

My question is why does it continue to show spam comments after they are deleted forever ?
can you block ‘anomymous’ or even your own ?

spor February 28, 2010 at 2:13 AM

Finally it works. Thanks!

Clemens Vargas Ramos March 4, 2010 at 10:31 AM

Thank you, that’s really fine. I adapted it to ma needs.

Is there any possibility to have the real title of the post displayed instead of the filename of the html file? Because sometimes the filename is not the same as the title post (and vice versa)?

Thanking you for your answer.

Clemens Vargas Ramos, Germany

Clemens Vargas Ramos March 6, 2010 at 4:17 PM

… problem solved. It was easier as I thought.

Dick March 12, 2010 at 2:56 AM

So how did you get this to work (blog title instead of html file name)?

Clemens Vargas Ramos March 16, 2010 at 8:29 PM

Dear Dick,

together with a json-callback to “…/feeds/comments/” I used a second call to “…/feeds/posts/” and integrated them with each other.

“…/feeds/posts/” contains the real titles of the posts.

You can copy this code at my blog (under LETZTE KOMMENTARE).

Simply replace the name of my blog with your blogname and the german words with english words.

The problem with author links is solved too.

Another problem is that blogger apparently has a limit of comment feeds (around 200 – 500 comments to process). It is possible to handle it but I’m still working on this.

arty March 16, 2010 at 11:49 PM

is there a way to post this code because we are dummies in scripts?
i cant find it..
maybe it is work for recent commets with greek language post titles…

thanx

Clemens Vargas Ramos March 17, 2010 at 8:44 AM

This is the code. Simply replace “http://meisterschuelerdialog.blogspot.com” with “http://YourBlogname.blogspot.com” and the german words by english words. That should work. Otherwise let me know. I need to say that I’m not a programmers professional.

my question is if we can put in this script some options to show some lines from the comment that someone is posted.Now is shows only the author of the comment the day and the time.

THANK YOU CLEMENS! I compared your blog’s scripts to mine and made the required changes…. works like a charm!

Dick March 12, 2010 at 3:01 AM

Great [working] addition to my blog! I have tweaked it a bit to fit my needs, but there are two features I can’t seem to implement:
– Blog title should show as actual blog title, not html file name.
– Author name should display with link to author’s profile (if available) not as link to my blog post

Any pointers?? Thanks!

arty March 13, 2010 at 11:36 PM

post title doesnt work in Greek language.Any unicode?

example: arty commented on blogpost_13

thank you

Arty and Dick:

My script still has some serious lacks. I am in the process to eliminate them and hope to post the new script here at next week.

* One problem is that sometimes the real post titles are missed.
* Another – and the greatest problem – is that you can not show more then 200 – 500 posts/comments (there is a limit of feeds by Blogger.com). That is bad for blogs with hundreds and thousands of comments. It is possible to handle it but it still needs some work. Even if you have far less than this number of comments you still need the new script because of the first problem mentioned.

I’m working on it!

arty March 18, 2010 at 10:40 PM

yes the first part ..the one with the missing post titles i see it now in my blog
example: some lines is like that : arty commented on blogpost_04

the second i dont need it beacause i dont have so many comments.For me its enough 200 comments.

we waiting to see your script here in next week

thanx clemens

Hi Clemens,

Just wanted to thank you for providing help to fellow users of this widget.

As suggested by arty may I invite you to write a guest post on this blog (in English :) ) based on the code you have modified.

You will then be able to place your code in more structured manner and I’m sure it “ll have more visibility.

Thanks!

Clemens Vargas Ramos March 19, 2010 at 10:36 PM

That’s a nice idea, ROW, and I will do so in a few days as soon as I have “internationalized” and thoroughly tested a new revision of the script.

Clemens Vargas Ramos March 22, 2010 at 8:55 PM

ROW, in a few days or so the new code should be ready to use and I may write a post desribing its features. How can I do so on your blog? Do you want me to send the post first to you as an email?

ROW March 22, 2010 at 11:00 PM

Thanks Clemens. I have sent you my email id.

Peter March 26, 2010 at 6:01 AM
