What does it do?

This stack builds a list of recent posts to your blog and creates a linked list, allowing your visitors easy access to some of your most recent entries.


The Recent Posts stack needs to know which page contains the appropriate Blog Entries stack so it can hand off the duties of loading your posts to that page. Select the SET LINK button and then choose the page in RapidWeaver that contains the appropriate Blog Entries stack.


Determines how many recent blog items will be seen within the list that the Recent Items stack creates.

You can opt to have bullet points of different styles before your entry links. You can even choose to use an icon as the bullet point. If you opt for an icon you will be given controls for choosing the icon and its color as well.
