Recent Comments--arrgh!

Although I was not mentioned in Becks's shout-out to blogs without recent comments, I felt her cri de coeur as a call to action. After all, I had managed to install a "recent comments" hack on "Hating on Charles Bird"; that hack was so easy, and it changed everything about that site. I'm all in favor of recent comments hacks.

So, alas, the template for the old "Hating on Charles Bird" site got corrupted during the recent move to its new digs (which are here, should you need to hate on Charles Bird for some reason), and I can't find the elegant hack I used back then.

I've been mixing and matching from lesser sources, and I'm not getting any closer to what I'm looking for. For now, you can mouse over that hideous "BlogItemURL" business to see the desired result. Any suggestions? Anyone?

[Update: Fixed! Thanks again, Jay Sundahl!]

Here's the url for the farrago recent comments hack you used at HOCB. Assuming this is remains a low volume blog you probably won't need the patch I did to eliminate the hidden text for mouse over.

Sorry URL here

That should be "Sorry, URL", not a "sorry url". I seem to be having a punctuation and formating malfunction today.

I limited my shout-out to people using the Manifest Density template, thinking that their lack of recent comments might be related. But I am pro-Recent Comments for everyone so yay!
