3 most Recent Posts in a Box

Hi Maureen,

 

To be clear, you want the posts in a box of some kind, showing the title of the post, presumably linked to the post.  Right?  Just three posts?

 

There are two ways: 1st, you may use an RSS reader plugin to call three recent posts with links of the title only. Haven't tested this, but it seems to be popular:

2nd is using a much more complex plugin called Special Recent Posts.

Is it possible to put  the 3 most "Recent Posts" like the  "Widget" in a box and add it to a box set? So I could show the titles of the blog posts as links in the box.  How would I do that if possible?

 

Thanks...
