from the documentation - "Post: add the latest post from a category. if you choose the same category a second, third, fourth or fifth time in another column the offset will be generated automatically so that you dont display the same post twice"
It seems though that my latest posts never show up after I've published them. I have to create another one and publish it before the first one will show up. So, in other words, in order to get a post to show I have to create a new one..it's a vicious cycle. Have any idea what I'm missing here? Thanks.
