This plugin will add a recent comments widget for Disqus, to your WordPress site. The widget will not impact your site loading time, as all the queries made to the
Disqus Servers. The main features of the widget include:
– control avatar size.
– use circular avatars.
– control comment excerpt length.
– hide avatars
– hide comments made by moderators.
– control the number of comments.
– the widget will adapt to the parent style of most themes.

Please make sure that the plugin folder has 777 or 775 permissions. If the permissions are not correct then the plugin will not be able to read the necessary css script.
- How you created this?
I made use of Disqus’ original “recent comment” script and guidelines provided by the WordPress codex.
