This plugin when it renders, is fab and perfect for my magazine style layout on the home page.
One issue however, which is driving me Ka-bonkers [that's "nuts" with bells on it]!
I would like that - this home page of my ezine begins some intro blurb describing the blog [logical huh?].
Then some key links below that point to imporatant pages.
THEN the contents of the YD Recent Post.....plugin shortcode as the last element on the layout[and yes I have tried HTML tables but then that creates a whole new can of whupass].
Now I place these elements [logically] and guess what? The plugin forces its contents to the top of the page, squeezing the Intro blurb towards the bottom of the page.
I get no help from the author [I've tried] and wonder if anyone knows of a way of resolving this, simply? I have trawled large parts of the WP real estate to find a simlar solution without success.
I have found a great widget [Recent Posts], but I need its equivalent for inserting into my page.
Like several other areas of the WP construct it is completely illogically applied [whilst the main principle is flippin brilliant].
The principal idea is to have an dynamically updating list of post excerpts.
Can anyone help please?
