[box type=”info”]UPDATE: If you’re looking for a more customizable Recent Posts Widget, you may want to try this Recent Posts Widget for Blogger (v2). It allows you to change the number of posts, the number of characters of the post summary (excerpt), and show the post dates. You also have the option to display post titles only (without the post excerpts). Or if you want it with post images, grab the Recent Posts with Thumbnails Widget instead.[/box]
