Comments with avatar in sidebar

<?php
function src_simple_recent_comments($src_count = 8, $src_length=35, $pre_HTML='', $post_HTML='') {
 global $wpdb;
$sql = "SELECT DISTINCT ID, post_title, post_password, comment_ID, comment_post_ID, comment_author, comment_date_gmt, comment_approved, comment_type,
SUBSTRING(comment_content,1,$src_length) AS com_excerpt
FROM $wpdb->comments
LEFT OUTER JOIN $wpdb->posts ON ($wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID = $wpdb->posts.ID)
WHERE comment_approved = '1' AND comment_type = '' AND post_password = ''
ORDER BY comment_date_gmt DESC
LIMIT $src_count";
$comments = $wpdb->get_results($sql);

$output = $pre_HTML;
foreach ($comments as $comment) {
$output .= "\n\t
	<li>" . get_avatar($comment, $size="40", $default_avatar ) . ' <a title="on ' . get_the_title($comment->ID) . '" href="' . get_permalink($comment->ID) . '#comment-' . $comment->comment_ID  . '">' . strip_tags($comment->com_excerpt) . '...</a></li>
<a title="on ' . get_the_title($comment->ID) . '" href="' . get_permalink($comment->ID) . '#comment-' . $comment->comment_ID  . '">';</a>
}
$output .= $post_HTML;

echo $output;

}
?>

Go to “custom fields” section and add a new field as thumbnail and put the image path in the value field. See the example

Now put the following code in the custom theme’s template file

<?php
if(get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', $single = true)) :
echo '<img src="'.get_post_meta($post->ID, 'thumbnail', $single = true).'" title="'.$post->post_title.'" width="98" height="82" />';
endif;
?>
