I'm setting up my WordPress templates for the first time and things are going well. I'm sure this is an easy request (I hope so anyway). I have a sidebar on my page where I'd like to be able to show the 5 most recent entries of a specific category.
For instance, say I have a handful of posts, filed in these categories: "Work", "Personal", "Travel". In my sidebar, I'd like to have a list like "5 most recent travel entries" and show the titles of those posts that have been filed under "Travel" (the titles would be links to the individual posts).
Is there a built-in function that can do this or do I need to write my own?
Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help anyone can give.
