Putting a list of Recent Comments on your page

A fellow Dean blogger asked how we get the Recent Comments section at the top right of the home page. If one is asking, more are probably wondering, so here's the relevant code snippet we use (it works with Movable Type 2.64; it may work with lower versions as well):

<div class="sidetitle">Recent Comments:</div>
<div class="side" align="left">
<MTEntries recently_commented_on="5">
<a href="<$MTEntryLink$>#<$MTEntryID pad="1"$>"><$MTEntryTitle$></a> [<$MTEntryCommentCount$>] ..

We put it in its own custom template in case we want to Include it in more than one page.

Hope this helps!
