Plug-in Recommendation...
I'm looking for a plug in that will display headlines from the 5-10 most recent posts in the rss feeds of selected blog buddies. Know of anything like that?

BTW you can check out Atahualpa Cuban-style at http://babalublog.com/wpr/

Looks good. At first glance I didn't even notice that it's Atahualpa.

Re: Plugin. Sounds like multiple default WP RSS widgets could do that. You can choose to show only the titles ("Display item content?").

We actually are migrating from MT 3.2. My job was to find a 3-column theme that could be modified to look a lot like what we have now: http://babalublog.com

I'm not sure I understood your answer.

Do you want to display your posts on other blogs, or the posts of other blogs on your blog? And where is the plugin going to be installed? On your blog or on the other blogs?

With the default RSS widget of Wordpress you can display full posts or headlines from other blogs on your site, and by using several of those RSS widgets you can display posts from several other blogs on your site...

"Display item content" is an option in the default RSS widget. Uncheck it to display only the post titles.

I want to display items from other blogs in my sidebar. I tried the RSS widget that came with the install but it doesn't seem to work. I paste the feed address in the correct place on the widget and when I check the site the widget doesn't appear. When I go back it says there is not atom or rss feed at that address.

I was able to use the RSS widget for feeds from your site on my site, see http://wp27.bytesforall.com/ left sidebar, bottom

In the RSS widget, at "Enter the RSS feed URL here" I've put http://babalublog.com/wpr/feed/

Are the blogs that you're trying to pull feeds from Wordpress blogs? Maybe it's a feed type/format issue, RSS vs Atom, something like that.

Can you get the feeds from this URL http://wp27.bytesforall.com/?feed=rss2
(When you put that URL into your RSS widget)

You seem to have put your own (non-RSS) URL into the RSS widget on your site: http://babalublog.com/wpr/
The RSS URL would be http://babalublog.com/wpr/feed/ but that's still wrong as you would need to put the RSS URL of another site there (not yours)
