    In the Adventerous THeme I have put a WIdget on the sidebar with Recent Posts in it.
    The theme has an older posts link way at the bottom of the page. I am using full content, not exerps with readmore buttons.

    Is there an easy way to add an olderposts link to the Widget for recent posts without changing the code in the editor.

    THis would be HTML code not “Custom Css”

    Or do I just need to go find a plugin that shows both the newer posts and an older post link.

    Hi @marketingman,
    There is no easy way to achieve what you want. There is going to be a lot of HTML, PHP and CSS changes required. Please hire a customizer for this work.

    Pratik,

    Yeah, I kind of looked at this yesterday some. Here’s what I came up with.

    1. Making a custom Menu of older Post Pages.
    2. Trying a couple of the Older Post Widgets I found.
    3. Going back to Exerpts and Keep Reading buttons, which I don’t really want to do.
    4. Use a widget that dies not limit the Titles to 15 on recent posts.
    Basically making the sidebar a Titles bar and moving the other widgets back to the footer.

    Themes are wonderful as far as they go, but WordPress went off the rails when it tried
    to be a half assed CMS.

    I looked into making my own child theme and that is far too complicated too for the things I want to change. I will change Themes again before I will rewrite this one.
