Thanks to some my blog readers, who emailed me through my contact form, about this topic to turn my attention towards it. Today in this article, i will show you how to display recent comments in blogger either in your sidebar, footer or any other place you like.


Things you should know about Recent Comments Widget in Blogger
You might have an active community on your blog, where people often leave a comment or two on your multiple posts. However, people who leave comments on your blog are actually your followers as you don’t really see new people commenting on your blog posts unless they need help.  So, this widget could help new visitors in motivating them to take part in the conversation which would certainly increase the engagement in your blog as well.
How to Add Recent comments in Blogger?

1. Login into your blogger dashboard with your Google account.
2. After logging in go to Layout >> Add a Gadget >> Add HTML/JavaScript and paste the following piece of coding below, that will turn into a list of recent comments on your blog.

<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://www.entertaintechnews.com/feeds/comments/default?alt=json-in-script&callback=showrecentcomments ></script>
<style type=text/css>
.rcw-comments {
font-family: inhert;
font-size: 14px;
margin-bottom: 15px;
border-bottom: 1px solid #d2d2d2;
padding-bottom: 15px; line-height: 20px; }
}
</style>




Note: You need to replace www.entertaintechnews.com with your Website URL, so that this widget will work just fine. To increase the number of comments shown on the widget simply search and replace “5” with the no of comments on you want to show.  If you like to display dates along with comments than replace “False” with true. If you want to limit comment characters then replace “100” with any other that you like.

3. After customizing you can save the widget by pressing "Save" button present towards the end of the widget. Once done, you will be able to see recent comments on your blog.
