List of headlines for easy review of recent posts.

A critical friend commented on the layout of my blog where you have to scroll down for ages to find things. So, I thought I'd do a list of recent ones with just headlines and urls for easy access.

    Funny, I was thinking the exact same this morning. Some bloggers have a list of previous articles (as hyperlinks) on the rhs. It would make the Good News archive easily accessible.

    WordPress will have a facility for displaying recent articles in a side column or footer- as Broadbield suggests above. Exact method will depend on your template – or you may have to download a widget to do it. Haven’t used WP for a while. But it would avoid having to publish the list in the flow of your articles

    Another way is to put a link in your header to a separate page in which you paste the “live” summaries as above. So the “ABOUT” link which used to be in your header could be changed to RECENT ARTICLES and its content would be the pasted links above.

    I posted some info to your previous “About” section about using Scoop-it to provide a possible graphic “Recent Articles” function. This had a link to a dormant scoop-it portal as an example. I don’t know whether you got this before your “About” section disappeared. I can repost if necessary. However, I have just updated the portal with your recent 3 articles.( see )It literally took me 90secs to log in and paste the 3 urls, So if you set up your own scoop-it portal, you could link the “RECENT ARTICLES” in your header to the Scoop-it portal which would then serve as your “Recent articles” section, simultaneously giving them more exposure.

    Best wishes
