Update December 29, 2015: This post is part of the WPMU DEV Blog archive and contains information that is out-of-date, but we’re keeping it on the blog for posterity. For all the latest WordPress news and resources, check out our latest posts.
So, now we’re done with the revamp… we can get on with the really important stuff, delivering you darn great plugins and this is a particularly nice one I reckon.
It’s called Recent Posts and it allows you to display, guess what, recent posts from across your site on your frontopage (or, wherever you want to, in fact).
It requires the post indexer, and a bit of theme editing pokery, but that’s all you need to get a very nice looking front page that extends on our recent global posts widget.
