    Hey everyone, hope you all are having a good day!

    I have recently created a wordpress site, and have been playing with the layout. I have decided how I want things to look, but need some help getting there.

    I need a "Featured Posts" type of widget. I would like to "feature" the 4 newest posts on my site, across the top of the page horizontally, listing the titles of the posts and placing a picture next to each one. I have searched all over wordpress for relevant plugins, but none of them have been able to do such a simple task... :p

    Any ideas on what plugin/widget will help me achieve this? :)

    Well I'm kind of going for the opposite: I already have a space for a widget, but I need a widget that will pull the titles of my last posts and give it an image... think "Featured articles" and 4 horizontal boxes, picture and title linking to the article.

    Only good example I can find (top center 4 links with pictures): http://packetstormsecurity.orghttp://packetstormsecurity.org
