Comments RSS feed

Something that many people, including myself, find extremely useful when reading others' blogs: an RSS feed for the last 45 comments made to any of the blog entries. Enjoy :) Thanks to Jeremy and revjim for the template (slightly modified here).

Now if only I could find a way to build per-entry RSS feeds... Of course, this will be trivial to do with at most half an hour's worth of Perl, but I guess I'm kind of lazy right now, so it might have to wait.

Oh, and if anybody's wondering, the template itself is basically revjim's work, with two changes to the two MTComments tags: upped the number of comments to 45 (the lastn attribute) and reversed the sort order (added a sort_order="descend" attribute).

I noticed a bug, I don't understand. In the feed all comments have as date the Entry's date, and not the Comment date, although the Code uses MTCommentDate, and I used MTCommentDate on my Main Index, and there it works right...strange..
