Recent posts widget with date for homepage

Recommended Posts

Lisa Haran

Hi, I want to use a recent post widget for my homepage but the default widget with pagelines does not let you display the date with each recent post. I have searched through the WP plugins but yet to find a solution. Would you know of any? Thanks in advance

I think it might be possible to create code that lets you display recent posts with the dates, but it will have to be a shortcode that you can add to a regular text widget that is enabled in the sidebar.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Hi Catrina, Could you be more specific please, do you have an url with this info or would you know the shortcode I add to a text widget? Thanks

Brenb, I'm not sure if this would work for you, but http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/recent-posts-plus/ seems to be a fairly promising plugin. In the right place, it could do just what you asked.

You may also want to look into RSS readers as well. They can be used to feed posts from your site to a page.
