3 most Recent Posts in a Box

Recommended 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...

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.

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
       
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on? 
       
      Thanks!!

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.
      Thanks,

      Everything was fine with my site.
      Suddenly, strange characters are appearing in Boxes. See image. Site page is here. I even tried to add a new Boxes section but the same thing keeps happening, so I deleted the new section.
      How can I resolve this?
      Your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.

      Hi,
      Could it be possible to add to the boxes an option so that if an Item has an optional link that we can also optionally make it open in a new windows.
      Thank you :-)
