Include Recent Post in Category
I use a free WordPress Theme called DefautMag, It has a front page with 3 columns, In the front page settings, I could choose any category to display in any of these columns, But I want to display recent posts in one of them. However, recent post is a widget and not a category. Is there any way that I can add recent posts to the categories so as to select it.
A slight problem here is, I am not a php programmer and I don’t want to break my site, just in case I have to edit the theme to replace one of the columns with recent posts.
I have searched extensively for days now. Any help will be much appreciated.
