en WordPress.com Forums › Themes The Morning After: Recent Posts Question Author Posts May 20, 2011 at 10:27 pm #617098 jonathanfuMember Hi, Do you know how to add a thumbnail to the recent post widget like here: http://www.dennislambing.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/wp-tma-cap.jpg Also, I can’t seem to figure out how to create a featured post. Can anyone possibly lead me in the right direction? Thanks in advance! The blog I need help with is thepixelrobot.wordpress.com.

The only wp.com theme that can display recent posts with thumbnails is Bueno – see here: http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2010/05/13/featured-postsimages-in-bueno/ May 20, 2011 at 11:00 pm #617221 timethiefMember I cannot view what’s at that link. However, I can tell you that if you are referring to a free blog from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM you cannot add anything at all to the Recent Posts widget. Please read this entry very carefully > WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org > the differences > http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ May 21, 2011 at 1:43 pm #617341 panaghiotisadamMember (@TT: As you guessed, the link is a snapshot of the wp.org version of the theme.)

I tried it once, then full sentences of Update appear now…I wanna just show a few sentences in Update on Home Page though… May 22, 2011 at 7:06 am #617374 panaghiotisadamMember To limit the length of Updates you use the read-more tag. http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ Author Posts The topic ‘The Morning After: Recent Posts Question’ is closed to new replies.
