Drupal

Is there a way in Drupal to maintain a separate database of content for a specific purpose & then (variably) include parts of that in several places?

Here is our specific requirement.

In the footer region of the Theme we are using, we want the 4th column to have "What's New" with ONLY the 3 most recent items showing (probably just a headline). See rkassoc.org/amc, fourth column of footer. There is just a placeholder there now.

There will be another page on the site called "What's New" that will have a list of maybe the last 10 (number unknown yet). Each item will be a headline, some text & maybe an image (or several). That page can be manually maintained if necessary.

Of course it is easy to build the "What's New" page. What I don't see is how to pull off the top 3 & put in the footer.

Thanks

OK, I'll probably try that.

But I want to emphasize that I want a regular page with (potentially) unlimited number that will be on the What's New page of the site; the footer block will be limited to 3.

Can I use the "view" to access the content of the "What's New" page & limit it to the most recent 3.

Can it work like that?

Thanks
Yes. That's what it does.

You can choose the number of items you want to appear, and you can choose which FIELDS to show, like on the the title, or the title and an image, etc. You might want to consider created a content type called what's new, and put in an image field which is optional, plus any other fields you might need.
