I want to show 4 most recent posts (the permalink_link not working)

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am trying to show the 4 most recent posts at the bottom of the homepage on notetoselfnz.com. I've attached an image to show what I want it to look like. feat-posts.png Whats the best way to do this in pagelines as I can't seem to figure it out. For information I have tried to pull out the posts using regular wordpress loop, but when I tried to link up the title it just showed the link as it is the tags are not working to link up the title or anything else. I have given my website url too. You can see it on the homepage. The code of php is:

query_posts('category_name=news&showposts=4');
	
	while(have_posts()) : the_post();
	
	echo '

'.get_the_title().'

'; echo ''.the_post_thumbnail( array (250,129) ).'; endwhile;[/code]

Cheers!

There's a plugin called Special Recent Posts: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/special-recent-posts/. It's a widget plugin you can add to your bottom sidebar that will display your recent posts in widget format.

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

But the recent post plugin is still not meeting my requirements and when I try to extract the post from database the pagelines don't let me link up the post? How can I show something like the image I have attached in the original post

Hi Teeskie, If you use the Special Recent Posts widget shortcode after you have set the options to your preference. Add this shortcode to Boxes or use the PageLines Grid system. http://www.pagelines.com/forum/discussion/18546/what-is-the-underlying-grid-system-for-framework-2#Item_3 There is also now a section been recently added to the PageLines store, which may be exactly what you're after? http://www.pagelines.com/store/sections/latest-blog-entries/

Please search our forums, before posting!
