Blogger comments feed broken

Yesterday I noticed, that my recent_comment widget was broken. The cause of that was blogger changing the structure of the comments feed - at least that's what I suppose. Anyways after checking the Help Group, I found that other folks have the same problems too. I decided to create a yahoo pipe to mess around with the comments feed so that it can be displayed using blogger's feed widget. It's not perfect, but you can at least see the recent comments.

So, I was able to get your pipes cloned and working for me, but how did you add it to your blog?

you can just use the feed widget, which you can add as a page element. The pipe gives you an rss feed that you can hook up with the feed widget.

Regards, David

Thanks David, I hope Blogger fixes whatever they did even if it wasn't their "fault"!

I found this post by Googling "blogger comment feed".
