Hello,

I am using the default Recent Posts widget in WP 3.1, but would like to have a link under the listed posts "see all posts".
How would I do that?
I am not so php savvy, so bear with me...

Thanks

Hello.

You can add the link without being a wizard in PHP :)
here is how:

1. Login into WP administration
2. Go to Settings > Recent Posts
3. Go to Output (you have an attached image that will help
4. in the "Text and codes after the list" text box, add the following </ul><a href="../">Show all</a>
(../ < should be replaced with the link that goes to your blog, where all posts are shown)
5. Click "Save output settings"
6. Verify that it works :)

Hello stopReplying,

sounds fantastic, just that I don't have Settings > Recent Posts.
Are you using a special plugin?

Got it. Just missing the link where all posts are shown. Do you have an example? with all categories?

You can try with Archive: for example:
instead of ../ in the code above, input http://www.yoursite.com/?s=+
This searches your posts for a space, so any post that have at lease one space will be shown in a list.
You might consider a problem the fact that it paginates the results, but I have no way around that...

Just found another way, by author adding author/(name)/ to the url.
