New macro: recentNewsItems

A new Manila macro, available only on Harvard's server (for now) is a clone of the Radio macro that displays recent blog posts.

{recentnewsitems (maxPosts:25, maxTitleLength:35, flIncludeWhen:true, cellspacing:5)}

You can see the macro in use on this site, in the right margin. It shows the last 25 posts and the date they were posted.

You can use it on your site by clicking on the Edit button in the right margin (if your site has one) or by editing the template of your site. (In the Editors Only menu choose Prefs, then Advanced, then Template.)

If you have questions post them as a comment here.

PS: If you're running a Manila server, the source code for the macro is available.
