Over in https://raddle.me/f/meta/55551 we're talking about ways to facilitate discussion. One idea that seems popular, unobtrusive, and does not "force" conversations is to offer an option to sort by most recent comments.
Looking through the source of Postmill, it seems that a function to return a paginated list of the most recent comments already exists, in CommentRepository.php.
I unfortunately do not have the php skill to figure out how to expose this function on the site. It looks like the stuff that does front page sorting is in FrontController.php.
Anyway, any leads on this would be much appreciated. Like I said, looks pretty straightforward, I just don't really know what I need to do.
EDIT: okay so raddle.me/comments exists. I think it'd be cool to put a link to this page titled "recent comments" in a tab right next to "most commented" on the front page. I can probably do the code myself i literally just need someone to help me find where the code that actually makes those tabs is.
