[SOLVED] BFA Recent Comments, not all links working

I have a fairly standard implementation of Atahualpa. The only real tweak is a CSS insert for an image background on blockquotes.

The BFA Recent Comments widget has a strange behaviour, where every few lines are not active links. Some are, some are not. I can't see the pattern. I thought maybe it was related to zebra behaviour, so I turned off 'highlighting on hover' for tables just in case, but that didn't work. I have it enabled just on category pages for testing.

The wordpress built-in Recent Comments widget works as expected. I have it on all pages for you to inspect.

Any suggestions?

For the moment, I switched to WP RecentComments, so have disabled the BFA version. This question can be considered low priority now.

Ok this is just a 'how does this work issue.'

If you look at the settings you chose, you picked 'Author Name on: Post Title'

The first item in your choice THAT IS UNDERLINED will be the 'first link' the second item underlined is the 'second link'. Since there is only one item underlined, that now reflects what you have chosen in the second section.

You picked the first option and said 'let the first link point at the authors homepage - the second link doesn't apply since there is no second link. So the only time you could link is if the user had left a website when they made the comment.

You need to point the first link at the comments to get it to work in your case.

Lots of possible combinations and ways to mess yourself up.

oohhhhh you're a genius, thanks mate. I'll probably swap back to the BFA widget tomorrow.
