Scroll Box For Recent Posts (3 posts)

    I use the recent posts plugin to display and excerpt of previous articles below the most current article.

    I just came across a neat scroll box, which you can see <href="http://www.albertmohler.com/">here and I was wondering if anyone knows a way to use this in WP?

    I'ld like my "recent posts" to display inside a similar scroll box.

    Yes, it is called an iframe and for those of us who seriously use the Internet, we don't like them. If you want to know why, ask, but if you still want to do this "neato" gimmick. Look up iframe.

    Also search the web for CSS's overflow property. You'd use it like

    <div style="overflow: auto">
    Here's a big paragraph of stuff...

    If the paragraph fits within the div then no scrollbars will show. If it doesn't then 'auto' will cause scroll bars to display. It can be a little tricky between browsers though.
