I have a couple questions about implementing a couple things on my Wordpress blogs. In an effort to get better at coding in Wordpress, I'd rather not use plugins to build a recent posts and popular posts tabbed structure to drop in the sidebar.
Does anybody know how to do this? Is there some particular code I have to drop inline to get it to work? Have any links to particular Wordpress functions/classes?
Thanks... and I can provide some code examples if you need.
