What ‘recent comments’ are you referring to? i just tested with the native ‘recent comments’ widget and it does show comments from pages and posts.

Thanks for getting back to me.
The sidebar shows only recent comments from postsSeptember 22, 2013 at 11:34 pm #164909
Can you link me to a page where i can comment to test if it appears in the widget?

There isn’t a comment form in that page, (Purchase code hidden if logged out) /”>enable it first please.

page I’m talking about:

The pages don’t have comments on by default. You can turn them on by adding the following to the page.php after the page loop as added (get_template_part( ‘includes/loop’, ‘page’ );
//wordpress function that loads the comments template "comments.php" comments_template( '/includes/comments.php');

Thanks, I’ve added that line and you can now leave a comment on a page.
Still, recent comments from pages aren’t shown in http://www.valuation.co.il/?theme=enfoldSeptember 25, 2013 at 2:03 am #165901
Not sure if Josue was mistaken or it was a fluke but it doesn’t look like the default recent comments widget is supposed to display anything but recent blog comments: http://en.support.wordpress.com/widgets/recent-comments-widget/
Granted this is the modified version for the .com blogs but I believe it holds true for the regular recent comments widget.
WordPress was and still is in many ways a blog platform that is transitioning into a CMS so you may have better luck with just a different recent comments plugin with more options.
