New WordPress widget: Recent Comments

When I wrote post about my palmtops story WordPress added many pingbacks into my older posts (which I linked to). As a result all of them appeared in “Recent Comments” widget. This hide real ones so I decided that it is time to change something.

And thats how “Hrw Recent Comments” widget was created. I took wp-includes/widgets.php file from my WordPress MU installation and extracted original widget. Then one edit of SQL query and everything works like expected — no pingbacks to my blog posts in sidebar.

Download plugin.

License: same as WordPress (as it is WP code mostly).

UPDATE: fixed SQL query to make it really work.
