Recent Post on Home

Ive been seeing alot of of recent post on widgets but still cant figure out how to do recent post on home page basically before your forum starts.

Its like literally putting the "find_new_posts" template in the home probably on "node_list", below is a preview of what im looking for.


any help would be appreciated thanks!
Ah yes, I see it. Nice! You may want to make the fonts a bit bigger for the title PinoyGamer Latest Discussions.

I'm trying to do the same, except placing the Recent Posts in the right sidebar. I do have the Widget Framework, just find it difficult to learn a new language. Over time it will be easier...

Cheers! and thanks for the helpful reply!
