    On another blog it shows like 10 but on this other one it was going up then went down to like 5.

    I want more so it looks more content rich when ppl look at the snapshot.

    I thought 10 was default but it seems to have 'snapped' to 5, not sure why.

    The other site actually has 20 recent posts, I want to also have that amount on the other one if it can be done easily.

    Any ideas?

    If you are using wordpress then goto "Appearence>Widgets>
    Then goto recent posts widget in the sidebar and change the value from 5 to 10.

    If it's wordpress it's really simple.

    Go to - appearance-widgets

    Then drag the recent posts box on to the sidebar widget. Once you do this it will give you a box to place how many posts you want to show.

    If it doesn't work from changing the recent post count widget then you'll have to edit the theme itself as it's coded somewhere in that (can be theme specific).

    Ye I tried it and it didn't work.

    I was looking around in the editor earlier and there are several sidebar files.

    What should I do?

    If anyone is kind enough to look the theme is:
