I posted a similar request (but not as thoroughly explained) on the "plug-ins" forum, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/59298?replies=1, and got no response, so am trying again, here.
I have c2c_get_recent_posts intalled. I'm using WordPress 1.5.
Problem: The list of recent posts runs all the posts together as one long, long sentence, with no distinction, no styling per post and no space between posts.
Suspect I just need to add the right "substitution tags" as described at http://www.coffee2code.com/archives/2004/08/27/plugin-customizable-post-listings/.
I'm still a beginner at this coding stuff and not as fast a learner at it as I'd like to be, so may need some really elementary help here. And will really appreciate it.
But I'm not at all sure what to change or where in the loop, to fix this. Or if perhaps I should use a different plug-in?
I'm using Permalinks.
You can see the problem in action at:
I DID read the (i think it was 178) comments at the plug-in site--http://www.coffee2code.com/archives/2004/08/27/plugin-customizable-post-listings/--and this issue may be well-addressed there, but it was over my head. And comments are closed there now.
ULTIMATELY WHAT I'D LIKE TO ACCOMPLISH is to have:
1) A blank line of space between each listed post.
2) The first two words (at least) of each post in Bold and/or all caps, if possible. Or somehow otherwise distinguished.
Just accomplishing #1 would be adequate. The plug-in seems to do that for most users. I'm just not getting how to do it with my theme and permalinks, I guess.
If you need to work with me off-forum to get this resolved, let me know. If I need to pay for the help, let me know. I want to get this fixed. It and one other big challenge are hanging my progress.
Looking forward to your reply.
