I had taken Eiji’s Footprint gadget as a base, and modified the logic for identifying the recent visitors.

This gadget doesn’t store the Timestamp of the visitors. Instead it keeps track of a number, which each recent visitor gets assigned (that is always higher than the second recent visitor who visited the site).

(The Timestamp tracking method fails in few cases, when the visitors have a wrong time in their Computers. And also in the cases when visitors come from different time zones.)

Please provide your valuable feedback/suggestion by commenting, which will be useful for improving the gadget.

    I’ve put the “Recent Visitors” gadget on my blog and the title shows up, but neither the names or pictures of my visitors are available to view.  Any suggestions to fix this?  My account is on blogspot, if that helps.

    I appreciate it if you could get back to me.

    Thanks.
