    Hello,

    I'm using this plugin to show other recent posts below new posts in a specific category and it is working great!

    How do you limit the number of recent posts that are displayed? I would like for only about 5 posts to show.

    Thank you.

    Hey Tinstar,

    The number of posts isn't handled by the Widgets on Pages plugin I'm afraid, all it does is include the widgets as they would be used in the sidebar.

    If you let me know which widget you're using to display the posts I might be able to help'

    Thanks,
    Todd

    Great plugin, btw.

    @tinstar: I suggest you use "Recent posts plus" http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/recent-posts-plus/ as I have used on the home page here http://theawakeningself.com . You can set it to as many posts as you want, and format as much or little as you like as well. And you can put it within "widgets on pages" with no problem.

    A final point, on the site above I've partnered it with "decent comments" and got the formatting more or less matching.

    Thanks David, and yes I imagine an enhanced widget like that would do the trick.

    I have tried to setup the plugin, without any success. How does the plugin get the feed that you want to use?

    I have several blogs on health topics and I have specific feeds that I want to use for each blog.

    Thank you

    Hey mickey65, I think you too are posting in the wrong forum area. What is the widget called that you are using to get the feed items?
