[SOLVED] Increasing maximum number of "recent posts" in sidebar

Max number of "recent posts" entries shown in the sidebar seems to be 15, even if I write a higher number into the widget in Wordpress options. Haven't been able to find relevant code in .php files via either Atahualpa theme editor or my site's cPanel.

Can this limit be raised? If so how?

Thanks-

Ctenos

Have you searched for and/or tried any other recent post plugins?

Searched for a few; hadn't installed any before this issue came up. (Have since installed BFA_subscribe widget.)

Oops - I meant widget, not plugin - it's the "Recent posts" widget that came with WP. Only settings are title and how many post titles to show.

Sorry about that. Still don't know why it limits to 15.

that is a wordpress widget and is a very simple one just to showcase some of the things that can be done. You could look thru the wordpress code and see if there is a variable you could change or just use another 'Recent Posts' widget. Try some different ones out - experiment a little

Aha - found the answer in a WP forum:
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/i...osts-displayed

Apparently, the location of this code moved in the WP update. Cross-posting from
http://wordpress.org/support/topic/r...han-15-on-wp3:

The code is in wp-includes/default-widgets.php, lines 542-3 in my setup. I just did a search for the number 15 to find it.

Hope that helps others-
