Adding recent comments to the MT sidebar

When I started using the default templates coming with Movable Type 4, I missed the **Recent Comments** widget. Below I explain how you can add create this widget and ass it to your sidebar in true MT4 style.
In the Movable Type administrative interface, go to Design > Templates > Template Modules and open either the ‘Sidebar – 2 Column Layout’ or the ‘Sidebar – 3 Column Layout’ template module, depending on which one you are using. Scroll down until you find a line with “ and paste the following code just above that line (you can of course also choose another position for the recent comments widget):

Recent Comments

  • <a href="#comment-
    “> on <a

Now in any template where you want to show the recent comments (e.g. the main index template or the individual archive template) you add the following line: “
Rebuild your weblog, and it should show you the five latest comments in the sidebar, just as you can see on this blog.
