Won't display Avatars or Content

I have installed and activated the Recent Post and Post Indexer plugins so that I can have a "Latest Updates" section on the homepage (and yes I have made sure I created a new post since activating both plugins)

I can't for the life of me work out how to display the avatars and some contect from the log updates though - it is only displaying the title as a link!

Please please someone help before I tear all my hair out!

Thanks!
