Widgets »Display WordPress Posts

The Display WordPress Posts widget lets you display up to ten recent posts from another WordPress.com blog, or a self-hosted WordPress site with the Jetpack plugin enabled. The widget displays the title of each post, which links to the full post on the other WordPress site.


  • Title: Add some text that will appear before the site title, which will be displayed automatically.
  • Blog URL: Enter the blog address without http:// at the beginning. It will be stripped out if you include it.
  • Number of Posts to Display: Choose how many posts to display, up to ten.
  • Show Featured Image: Checking this box will display the featured image for any post that has one.
  • Show Excerpts: Check this box to display an excerpt for each post.
