But I want this list to show in the individual posts as well. Is there a way to do this?

It works like a charm. Thanks for this!

By: Kelvin Tue, 11 May 2010 04:02:08 +0000 Oh wow this is easy 😀 Thanks for this great article!

BTW, has anyone come across functions to merge both recent post and page update in chronological order?

By: Matthew Thu, 06 May 2010 14:50:52 +0000 Can you also tell the system to display the excerpt for the post? or just a teaser?

By: Leland Mon, 12 Apr 2010 14:26:33 +0000 Okay. All this code does is display a very simple list of recent posts. The markup is similar to this:

<li><a href="">Latest One</a></li>
<li><a href="">2nd Latest Post</a></li>
<li><a href="">3rd Latest Post</a></li>

If you want anything else (thumbnails, character counts, whatever) that would require a custom loop and I can’t really go over each specific case in the comments here.

By: Mark Mon, 12 Apr 2010 11:17:40 +0000 How do I do this and also have thumbnails? Very small thumbnails. 35px X 35 px. Google is annoying me sending me round in circles all day long. They’re useless lol.

Well I await your useful reply.


By: colin Fri, 09 Apr 2010 08:24:27 +0000 How about displaying recent posts, together with a set number of characters from the actual entry?
