"Recent Comments" feature added

Vintage Wargaming is perhaps not a typical blog, as the currency of posts does not depend on how recently they were made (mainly being about old stuff). For a while I have realised that some of the comments left on this blog may be missed by some visitors, as they may be to posts made some time ago, as new people discover the blog and delve into its earlier content. This seems a shame, both for people who have made comments which may not be generally seen, and for people who may miss comments which would be interesting or informative for them.

I have added a blogger gadget to the blog design, under the followers box in the right hand margin. This will display summaries of the ten most recent comments - clicking on them will take you to the comment, in the context of the original post.

I'll run this as a trial feature and if people like it will stick with it.

This is one of the best blogs there is and a valuable resource. The posts are timeless and still good many years after they are written. Let's see if the new comment machine works right.

It's a good idea to add this to help us find back articles - I wondered if you could possible include a full post listing on your blog as well? It would take up some space, but the older stuff collapses itself, so it's not that bad, and would help a lot. I can usually find things (and I do use this blog a lot) from the label index, but not always.

Hmm - Tony, at the moment your comment hasn't appered in the recent comments yet...

Have added archive at bottom of the page
