Home Forums Back End Previous Posts Widget

    I’d like to create a widget which displays previous posts (not recent posts like the WP default widget). Ideally it would allow the user to define how many previous posts to display, and would also take into account the posts displayed on homepage. So for example if I show the newest 4 posts, it would grab everything after that point.

    I think it would be very similar to Chris’ tutorial on recent posts function, but just somehow reversed so it shows previous posts: … -function/

    I’ve Googled around for awhile, but can’t find anything to lead me in the right direction. Maybe there is already a widget created for this? If so I couldn’t find it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.



    Change the 1 to be how every many recent posts you’d like to skip.


    I found a plugin that installs a widget – it does exactly what I needed:
