Get a list of the most recent blog posts with perch_blog_recent_posts().



Type Description
Integer Number of posts to return
Boolean Set to true to have the value returned instead of echoed.

Usage examples

Display the 10 most recent posts with the default post_in_list.html template.

<?php perch_blog_recent_posts(10); ?>

The first argument is the number of posts to show. The second argument can be set to true to return the HTML.

<?php $html = perch_blog_recent_posts(10, true); ?>

This is mainly a convenience function. It’s the same as doing the following with perch_blog_custom()

  'count'      => 10,
  'template'   => 'post_in_list.html',
  'sort'       => 'postDateTime',
  'sort-order' => 'DESC',

If you need to filter or make more changes then use perch_content_custom().
