    I am using this widget on my page and have some questions about basic display methods.

    A) The font size of the post excerpt is way too small. How can I have it match the font of my body text?

    B) How can you limit post excerpt display characters?

    C) I am using 2 column shortcode and putting this widget inside it but I can’t get it to display in two columns. For example, I want to display latest 4 posts but it just does them in one column no matter what I try. Screenshot:

    Thanks.

    Hi ehong33234,

    The widget shortcode isn’t really intended to behave in that way (as a main feature of a page) and it definitely won’t adapt itself to use another shortcode for the two column layout.

    The excerpt can be customized by you in the individual post by adding your own excerpt or using the <!–more–> tag: http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/

    To change the font size it would be best to see it in use live so that the css is specific to that page an implementation (so that it doesn’t spill over into another are of the site using similar selectors).

    Regards,

    Devin

    I understand. Looks like I will have to find a plugin or widget that can provide this functionality. I’ll post something here if I find a suitable option for future reference for others.

    Okay, found one that is very robust and works well. It is called Super Recent Posts. There’s a free version and a Pro version that is $6 on Themeblvd but allows layout customization. Very powerful!
