http://blogger.com/feeds/[blog-id-number]/comments/defaultWhere [blog-id-number] is the unique identifier for your blog. To find your unique blog ID number, simply log in to Blogger and access the dashboard for your FTP published blog. You can then locate your blog ID by looking in the address bar, where your blog ID will be the long numeric string at the end of the URL: Copy this number, and replace [your-blog-id] with this number instead. The URL for your FTP blog's comment feed will then be structured like this instead:
http://blogger.com/feeds/8351217949706258294/comments/defaultYou can use the URL for your comment feed to enable a link for subscribers; to syndicate through Feedburner, or simply to provide a list of recent comments which is drawn from your comments feed.
How to publish recent comments from your FTP blog's comment feedIf you would like to display a list of recent comments in a similar manner to this widget's display, you can use paste the following code into your blog template (be sure to change [your-blog-id] to your unique ID number!):
var a_rc=5;If you would prefer to show more (or less) of an excerpt for each comment, you should edit this phrase and replace "100" with the number of characters to display:
var o_rc=100;Note: to display no excerpt at all, you can simply replace "100" with "0". I hope this update has provided useful information for those publishing their Blogger blogs via FTP. Please accept my apologies for assuming FTP blogs didn't publish comment feeds! Many thanks go out to Pete for his helpful comment and information.
