I want to add an FAQ section to my website and will be implementing this with a blog page. I will dedicate a post to each question, allow users to comment on the questions and the answers, and have it all organized with the use of categories and tags.

I was thinking of using the "Recent Posts" widget set to "show 20" as my question list, in order to place it on top of the actual posts for navigation. Can I change the title of this widget?

Thanks!

Hello,
That is a really great idea you have for you FAQ's page, but unfortunately it isn't possible to change the title on the widget; wish I had better news.

Hey! just wanted to share that I found a work-around and I have now *practically* changed the name of my "recent posts" widget. This is what I did:


  1. added all my blog posts along with the "recent posts" widget

  2. did a preview of my blog,

  3. went to "View Page Source" on my browser,

  4. spotted the code for the "recent posts" widget (you can use the "search" or "find" feature on your browser)

  5. copied the code for the widget

  6. pasted it into a text widget and changed the title on there.



Follow this link to see how it came out and let me know what you think!
