    Hi, hope this is the right place to ask.

    I'm using the block for LnBlog with XenPorta so we get recent blog entries listed on our site.
    Now I want to give those recent post a more prominent place on the home page, so instead of putting them in the sidebalk, i'd like to have a real blog-like UI where the most recent posts are shown with a little preview text and a link to read more.

    As I requested this by the author, his reply was that it shouldn't be hard to do in the template but that he himself doesn't have the time for it, see http://xenforo.com/community/threads/ln-blog.26841/page-9#post-390058

    So could anyone point me in the right direction here? I figure I need to edit the EWRblock_LNBlogEntriesBlock template, but how?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for that suggestion, that put me in the right direction indeed.
    For the record, it was done using the following if-clause:

           <xen:if is="{$position} == 'top-left' OR {$position} == 'mid-left' OR {$position} == 'btm-left' OR {$position} == 'sidebar'">
