I have a static page, but I'd like to show a summary of blog posts, full-width, below the main content of that page. I tried placing the "Recent Posts" widget in the "Full Width Sidebar" and the "Universal Sidebar" then dropping that into my default template, but that shoves it all the way at the bottom - forced down by the content of the sidebar; as shown in the screen shot below.

What I'd like is a separated 'box' below the content 'box', also with rounded corners. Possible?

You need a plugin called Special Recent Posts.

This allows you to place the loop with or without thumbs, in the content area (or any other) of any page, using a shortcode.

Thanks! That works fine in the Widget area - but I don't see any instructions for shortcoding it into a static page or post?

If you write the shortcode, per the instructions in the WP.org page, you will be able to add the posts to a page. See this example:

This is the shortcode:

You have to replace XXX with the number value for the category you wish to display OR, if you want all posts, remove "srp_filter_cat_option='XXX' " entirely.
