Hi Smithy,

I think you have a number of options here:

  • Your recent posts widget possibly moved over to your Home page or whatever the landing page is.

  • An RSS reader widget placed on your landing page limited to the last post.

  • Use twitter to announce your post but in a different way. Suggest that if your title is about some aspect of remotely hosting files then ask a question" is hosting a file remotely worth the effort?" This then becomes an invitation for people to join your blog and comment.

  • You can post the occassional blog post onto something like DIGG.

  • If you haven't already create a Facebook Page and feed your blog onto this page. The last post will be at the top of your Page.

Hello Smithy,

Based on what you've described, do you mean an RSS feed widget which displays the latest posts made? If so, please see this tutorial: Adding an RSS feed.

If I have misunderstood, please do share an example. Thanks!

Hello wafflesith6160

I'm afraid that we have discontinued the Yola Blog Widget, and it's no longer supported by us.

If you create a blog with our Tumblr Widget, the date of creating or updating a blog post will be displayed in the bottom right corner of the post. You'll be able to customize the date format in the Tumblr Widget. Here is an example of the Tumblr Blog Widget on a Yola website: awesum Crochet blog.
