Comment Count on Recent Posts Menu
My occasional trawl through the digests of the Blogger User's Yahoo Group reveals an interesting outcome of the old-school "stack up default blogger tags in a funky and unexpected way" modification strategy. Want to show a comment count in your sidebar recent posts menu? Bob Afifi contributed the following stack o' tags to the forum:
<h2 class="sidebar-title">Previous Posts</h2>
<ul id="recently">
<bloggerpreviousitems>
<li><a href="<$BlogItemPermalinkURL$">"><$BlogPreviousItemTitle$></a><a class="comment-link" href="<$BlogItemCommentCreate$">"<$BlogItemCommentFormOnclick$>>
(<$BlogItemCommentCount$>)</a></li>
</bloggerpreviousitems>
</ul>
& they seem to get the job done just great. Very cool!
