Is it possible to place, on my homepage, a spot along with the link to the page, an automatically updating blog title? I want the most recent blog title to appear on the homepage. Is there a way to set it up so that happens automatically or will I have to do it manually? I have added a screenshot to try and explain my meaning.

Hi there Chris,

I would suggest you add an RSS feed from your blog to your home page.

Here is how you can do it:

1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery Widget onto your page.
2. A dialog box will open, search for 'RSS' to see all the widgets available.
3. Choose the RSS feed you would like to use on your site.
4. Edit your settings to the rss feed of your blog (it will be along the lines of yoursite.yolasite.com/blogpagename.rss.
5. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
6. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Another suggestion is to use an RSS feed from http://feed.mikle.com/en/ and customise it appropriately.

I hope this helps.
