    Hi, I just added the “Recent Comments” widget on my sidebar – see

    Is there a way that I can remove my own comments(which are replies to other comments) from this list? I want to showcase the people leaving me comments, so I don’t like seeing my own comments there.

    The blog I need help with is



    Not in as far as I know. You might try some funky work with threaded comments, but as far as I know it hasn’t been tried yet.

    But showing your own comments there is a GOOD thing, actually, because people realize you replied to them and they feel better and want to check it out. A blog owner’s comments are ten times more interesting to the readers than any other reader except themselves.



    Thanks for the reply! Oh well :-) I’ll keep what you said in mind.
