Recent Posts Widget : Type 2:

This widget was originally written by Hans of Beautiful Beta.

To add this widget to your sidebar, copy all of the code on this page and paste this into an HTML/JavaScript widget in the Page Elements section of your Blogger dashboard.

Customize this code,
<script style="text/javascript" src="http://citicutc.googlepages.com/recentposts.js">
</script>
<script style="text/javascript">
var numposts = 5;
var showpostdate = true;
var showpostsummary = true;
var numchars = 100;
var standardstyling = true;
</script>
<script src="http://YOUR-BLOGNAME.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?orderby=published&alt=json-in-script&callback=showrecentposts">
</script>

Replace 'YOUR-BLOGNAME' with the name of your own blog.

Set the number of recent posts you want to show (default=5).
If you want the post date to be displayed, give true for showpostdate (default = true).
If you want a post summary to be displayed, give true for showpostsummary (default = true), and enter the number of characters of the postsummary that you want to display (default=100).

Copy the code, save the widget and try out it. Be sure to replace the section in red with the URL of your own blog!
