Use function get_latest_posts($category, $limit=5, $start_tag=’
‘), to list latest post titles.
Ex: i) get_latest_posts("News"); above function call will list all latest posts titles from category 'News'. ii) get_latest_posts("News", 10); above function call will list ten latest posts titles. You can place fetched titles at any place of your web page, depending on your design.<h3>Settings</h3>
The plugin is simple to install:

latestpostitlesdirectory to the
wp-content/pluginsdirectory on your WordPress installation.

First, the question is too generic. But the main cause may be that category name you have given is present in your blog or not.
