Creating a 'Recent News' section (5 posts)

    I wanted to know how I could create a 'recent news' section on my website without having to add the html text manually? If I assign PHP to call the news data, that would mean it has to come from somewhere in the first place. I wanted to list text updates on what's happening of my blog.

    How could I do this?

    There are plugins that does this for you.... you can find those on a lot of sites....here's a few:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/
    http://wp-plugins.net/beta/
    http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/PluginDirectory

    But isn't what you're looking for is similar to recent posts....I would use query_posts php code to get posts from a particular category so whenever you post something to that category, it will show up.

    Hope this helped :)

    Thanks alot. Well yeah similar but to clarify further what I want is like a small section like recent changes I have made to my website or like misc news. For e.g.:

    Today
    I have made changes to xx

    And so on. So somehow I have to create a page where I can add the text and the php script will automatically display it. Although is there anyway to getting around this and not have to do manual html editing?

    4K, the plugin wasn't the one I was looking for but I found 'AWSOM' which is a news announcement script which is perfect. Thanks for tip. I just did not want to have to manually edit the html text through going into my website's CPanel, open the php file and do it there. This plugin allows me to use an editor right inside WP Admin page which is what I really wanted.
