    I am looking for a wordpress plugin OR just a way to do the following.

    I want on the home page an area that lists off the 2 or 3 most recent post. I want it to show the Title and date as well as the text that is put into the excerpt field of the posts. Does anyone know of how I can do this?

    The closest i have found is a plugin called "Recent Posts with Excerpts " It works great but does NOT have the date. wonder if I could modify this! I know how to get the PHP for the date in there.. but dont know how to have it tie in to displaying of the 3 most recent posts.


    No need for a plugin here, super simple loop! It’ll look something like this:
