  2. Hi Sukmalanu,

    When you added your comment feed URL was it able to retrive your feed and show you a preview?

    The preview page should show your recent comments if that happens and it wont save it could have been a temporary problem with blogger.

    Give it another go if it does not work i will show you another recent comments gadget.

    Paul.
