Format/control "RecentPosts"

I've added the "Recent Posts" to my theme, but I'd actually like it to display something different.. just wondering if there's a way to get what I want...

I'd like a simple list of last (5) posts that shows the title and the intro/slug with a more link and ideally have all the elements controllable via stylesheet (visibility, font etc)

it's just to help navigation around but would also be useful for WebSlice updates

Also would love to see a control that links to "Prev | Next Post"

Settings > Posts per page: Set to 5.

Settings > Only show description of posts: Enable (check it)

If I understand your question, the above will give you what you're looking for on the home page.

At the top of each post should be links to the previous/next post; they are not listed as "previous/next", rather they are listed by Name.

on the prev/next ... I guess Indigo doesn't have the links... I don't see them.

the Settings affect what's show on the home page, not the "RecentPosts" module that I've got embedded in the side bar

(but thanks!)
