how to list all post titles in sidebar, just like pages list (5 posts)

    Greetings
    I want some help please. I'm using WP 2.8.3
    I want to show a list in the sidebar that displays all post titles, just like the pages list, with a dot before each title. I tried to use the 'recent posts' widget, but it said the max is 15 posts. I failed to find the file where I can increase that max number.

    Is there a plugin or code edit that can do that please?

    Thanks. The first link seems useful, but it displays post titles in a page or post. I need to show it in the sidebar. How can I do that please?

    Isn't 2.8.3 vulnerable to the recent hack attacks?

    Sidebar Shortcodes can help with adding shortcode-based plugins in your sidebar

    I've used 2 small plugins, and they worked like a charm:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/show-posts-shortcode/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sidebar-shortcodes/
    Once I installed those 2 plugins, I went ahead and used the built-in "text widget" from: Appearance > Widgets, and dropped it where I want in the sidebar, then typed:
    [showposts]
    (I did edit the showposts shortcut plugin file to show 5000 posts instead of 5, and show them in DESC order instead of ASC).

    edit: thanks Kawauso, I just did that.
    Btw, I'm using 2.8.4, it was just a typo.
