A feature request for the next version:  allow the theme to specify whether it wants to see the comment/rating information in the RecentPosts control.

Hi Matt,
Actually, the current version of BE.N already has that feature. The Blog settings contains the property whether we want to display comments and ratings in the RecentPosts control. The control itself already checks the value of these settings. But, the settings admin page does not include these settings. Maybe the author forgot adding them.

So, if you are in a urgent need, just add theme in the Settings admin page, and tailor them to the existing BlogSettings properties.

I understand that the Admin settings can control this.  However, it would be nice if we could include a property on the RecentPosts control itself to enable/disable the display of the information (like the CategoryList has for the RSS icon).

Otherwise, theme authors need to include instructions like "turn off comments and ratings for the recent post control".
