Whenever a visitor sees your blog, a cookie is stored on his browser so there is a
way to detect the last time that she visited it. Based upon this information, the next time
she views your blog, the newest posts will have a “new” image attached to their title,
so the novelties will catch the user’s attention.


  • The main idea 🙂


  1. Unzip the newposts folder from the downloaded .zip archive.
  2. Upload that folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory on your server
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. Go to the Plugins menu and click on NewPosts – it will take you to the configuration. Choose the image you want displayed and click Update Options
  5. Place <?php newposts_display(); ?> in your templates right next to the post title (in index.php) e.g. find the piece of code <?php the_title(); ?> and insert the following piece of code in front of or after it <?php newposts_display() ?>


The provided images aren’t enough for me. How can I add more?

Just upload them to the /wp-content/plugins/newposts directory and then go back to the
Configuration page. The changes should be reflected now in the image combobox.

In the configuration page the combobox has no entries. What happened?

It’s most likely that you didn’t upload the newposts folder along with the plugin. Please read
