This plugin will enable a custom and advanced recent comments widget. Allows you to display a list of the most recent comments with avatar and excerpt, you can also choose which to show newer comments first or older comments first and choose comments from any post type.
Plugin Idea #
Just like Smart Recent Posts Widget plugin, the idea came because lack of features with the default Recent Comments widget. It only allows to just display recent comments, no avatar, no option for custom post types, no, nothing.
With this plugin, you can display recent comments with customizable avatar, display the comment excerpt, you can also exclude pingback and trackback which annoying if you display it on your sidebar, and much more!
This plugin's first version was released 5 years ago, and it's used by more than 4k WordPress installation! I constantly update the plugin, either to add a new feature or to support the latest version of WordPress.
