PyBlosxom plug-in:

You may have noticed a new feature on Copia. This one was inspired by a feature from Burningbird (Shelley Powers' blog). Copia now lists the last ten comments posted, with links to the author and the referenced entry. This weekend I wrote another plug-in, which implements this feature. from the doc string:

Generates a template variable, $latest_comments, which contains a listing of the most recent comments to the Weblog, in the form:

<div class="comment-link">
Author 1
Entry 1 title
<div class="comment-link">
Author 2
Entry 2 title

This plugin requires the comments plug-in (

This module supports the following, optional config parameter:

latest_comment_count - the number of comments to include in the
                         output (default 5)

It's taken a beating over the past few days, and held up OK. James Governor exposed a Unicode bug when he tracked back to an entry with a title using high characters. That's all fixed now (it took down Copia for a little while).

I release it under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 License (I really need to iron out the CC licensing throughout Copia).)

Let me know what you think. I need to get all these plug-ins into CVS and into the PyBlosxom registry one of these days.
