What is a Recent Posts Widget ?
A Recent Posts Widget is a widget that displays a short summary of the most recent blog entries.
Where do I put it?
Most bloggers put the Recent Posts Widget in the sidebar of their blog. But you can put it in any page element you like.
What is the code?
Add a html-type page element to your blog with the following content:
In this code the following parameters are used:
|numposts||integer number from 1 to 25||Number of posts to display|
|numchars||integer number > 0||Number of characters of the post content to be displayed|
|If true the post published date is displayed|
|If true a summary of the post content is displayed. A maximum of numchars characters is displayed, the rest is truncated. If the post-content had to be truncated, a link with the text …(more) is added to the summary.|
|If true no special styling is applied. Only the summary is displayed in italics. If false custom classes are applied (see below)|
|blogname.blogspot.com||any valid blogger blogname||The name of your blog|
|If the parameter is set to published the recent posts are ordered by publish-date. If it is set to updated the recent posts are ordered by update-date.|
If you want the Recent Posts Widget to be styled in a special way, you can define custom CSS-classes. The Widget has the following structure:
<div class="bbrecposttitle">PostTitle - PostDate</div> <div class="bbrecpostsum">PostSummary</div> <div class="bbwidgetfooter">WidgetFooter</div>
You can add CSS-code for these custom classes to the skin of your blog.
