I use a view

I use a view for this. It doesn't result in quite as tight a workflow as your blog post suggest the module does, but didn't require any code and is pretty good for me. Here is the exported view:


$view = new view;
$view->name = 'comments_recent';
$view->description = 'Contains a block and a page to list recent comments; the block will automatically link to the page, which displays the comment body as well as a link to the node.';
$view->tag = 'default';
$view->view_php = '';
$view->base_table = 'comments';
$view->is_cacheable = FALSE;
$view->api_version = 2;
$view->disabled = FALSE; /* Edit this to true to make a default view disabled initially */
$handler = $view->new_display('default', 'Defaults', 'default');
$handler->override_option('relationships', array(
'nid' => array(
'id' => 'nid',
'table' => 'comments',
'field' => 'nid',
'label' => 'Node',
'required' => FALSE,
),
));
$handler->override_option('fields', array(
'subject' => array(
'id' => 'subject',
'table' => 'comments',
'field' => 'subject',
'label' => '',
'link_to_comment' => 1,
'relationship' => 'none',
),
'name' => array(
'id' => 'name',
'table' => 'comments',
'field' => 'name',
'label' => 'by',
'link_to_user' => 0,
'relationship' => 'none',
),
'title' => array(
'label' => 'in',
'link_to_node' => 1,
'exclude' => 0,
'id' => 'title',
'table' => 'node',
'field' => 'title',
