This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Recent Commenters Widget


This is a very very simple modification of the default recent comments widget. All this does is to display recent commentERS instead of recent comments. In other words, it just displays the names, without the “…on name-of-the-post” that is there by default. You can choose whether or not you want the name to have a link, and what it will link to, if there is anything. Works fine in WPMU.

If you like it and feel you really would like to give some money, please send a donation to the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill ( ) or a charity of your choice.


  • The options of the Widget


  1. Upload recent-commenters-widget.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place the widget in a sidebar in the Appearance=>Widgets menu, and choose your options. Be sure to choose one and only one option for the link–or nothing will show at all.


Q: Any way to have radio buttons instead of checkboxes?
A: As soon as I get better at this!
