I'm trying to add a recent posts section on my homepage that displays the thumbnails of the most recent posts (excluding the one that is currently on the homepage).
It would be right after the loop on my main index page. I'd like to have a row of 4 latest posts, with their thumbnails (featured images) and the title of the post below each thumbnail, almost like a gallery view.
I've searched and tried all of the plugins and all of them aren't really doing exactly what I need.
This one seems to be the closest, but I am not sure exactly what it would take to get it going properly.
I'm not a PHP expert, but I can power through most things. I'm using theme twenty ten on v3.0.4 if that helps.
Any help would be much appreciated.
