plugin se kterým jsem byl dosud velmi spokojen "Get Recent Comments" přestal s novou aktualizací WP pracovat, tak jsem musel hledat jiný. Tento je také jednoduchý, intuitivní, ale pro ne-anglické weby je nešikovné, že do textu píše anglické slovo "ON" (opravil jsem - comments-widget-plus/includes/functions.php:71) ve zdroji, ale po aktualizaci zase určitě bude anglicky.

Could use an option to limit how many characters should be shown in title. I have a lot of titles that are very long and it just looks weird. So for example if you could shorten "This is a very long title of a post that I made" to "This is a very..." Otherwise, it looks really good and works as intended.

I was looking for a way to display latest comments on a widget easily and this plugin does exactly that. One suggestion that would increase its usefulness is to make it possible to choose the number of words that will appear for the title, just we choose the characters for the comment excerpt. Otherwise, good job!
