[resolved] Link to Posts from Single Category (5 posts)

    I want to have a part of my sidebar specifically for displaying the last 10 post titles in the Noteworthy category. It seems like there should be an easy way of telling WP to "show the last 10 posts from the Noteworthy category and link to their respective posts" but I'm not cool enough to be able to figure it out on my own. ;)

    While we're on the subject, does anyone know of a Noteworthy-ish plugin that works with WP 2.0.2? I tried Jamie Saunders' Noteworthy (http://webdeveloper.uk.com/noteworthy) but it didn't work. A plugin like that would probably take care of the whole issue.

    Thx!~

    http://mtdewvirus.com/code/wordpress-plugins/ - Recent posts plugin - allows you to customize how many, and from which category. Great plugin... :)

    Thanks Lady. Unfortunately, I don't see anything in the code that would allow me to specify a category - do you know where that part is?

    you've got to read the readme.txt ;)

    this is what i'm using:

    <?php mdv_recent_posts(3,'','<br /><br />',false,4,false); ?>
    i can't remember the statements offhand - but it should be in the readme file... :)

    I read the readme as well. The parameters are:

    $no_posts
    $before
    $after
    $hide_pass_post
    $skip_posts
    $show_excerpts

    Nothing about categories... :(

    Any other suggestions?

    UPDATE
    Totally by chance, I stumbled across Bowen Dwelle's updated version of MtDewVirus' Recent Post plugin, which does allow for specific categories. (http://www.dwelle.org/archives/2004/05/29/wp-plugin-recent-posts-v102/) This is good for the meantime, but I'd still really like to have a Noteworthy plugin for WP 2.0.2 that will show a little icon next to the post title...
