Blog post reel - Extension

Topics: Controls, Themes

Hi,

I'm looking for a way to create a page that would only show the last few post made on the site, similar to the recent post widget down the bottom of the site.

The idea is to integrate it in our website, (iframe maybe) and then redirect to the blog/post should the user wish to read more about it.

is there such an extension that exists or can I remove header / footer and widget from a page?

Thanks

J.

You could probably use custom front page to load list of posts as in "recent post" widget, basically looping over Post.Posts and displaying whatever you like.

-- Sorry, didn't pay attention to "iframe' part. Still, you can create stand alone page with post list in the blog and use it with iframe.

Thanks rtur,

I think I figured out I need to make my own theme in order to remove header / footer / calendar / search and other things.

I started playing around and I might be able to make it work. I might need a bit of help with the Post.Posts but i'll give it a go first.

Thanks

Jonathan.
