Recent Posts Plugin for Grav
Based on the
Archives Plugin, this plugin lists the most recent posts from your Grav Blog.
- Select the pages where your blogs posts are listed – only their child pages will be shown
- List categories: In addition to the posts from the blog pages, pages with the category will be shown
To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under
/your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to
recent-posts. You can find these files on GitHub.

recent-posts plugin comes with some sensible default configuration, that are pretty self explanatory:
enabled: true built_in_css: true date_display_format: 'F Y' limit: 12 order: by: date dir: desc filter_combinator: and filters: category: - sidebar page: - /blog
If you need to change any value, then the best process is to copy the recent-posts.yaml file into your
users/config/plugins/ folder (create it if it doesn't exist), and then modify there. This will override the default settings.
You can also list the current collection, without having to search for a taxonomy term by using
filters: - '@self'
Something you might want to do is to override the look and feel of the recent posts, and with Grav it is super easy.
Copy the template file templates/partials/recent-posts.html.twig into the
templates/partials folder of your custom theme, and that is it.
You can now edit the override and tweak it however you prefer.
