Right now, my sidebar displays SIX recent entries and I only want 5 displayed. I don't want to use a customized sidebar because then I'd have to use the crappy search widget and the search that comes with Cutline is SOOO much better than the widget one.
(I'm using Cutline.)
P.S. I also tried changing Options > Reading > Show the Most Recent 5 Post but that is only for Syndication Feeds.
