No problem I thought, if I can add links then I can add alist of previous posts. So off I go to the help page.
(Well ok I didn't just zap onto the correct page, that would have been a tad easy now wouldn't it. No I finally managed to locate the help I wanted after sifting through several lists, links and a brief trip on an interstellar highway, but then I don't have sat nav.)
Anyway, page located. Simple, all you have to do is copy the html text they very kindly give you and paste it into your sidebar where you want it to go. Right. Just in case you have to try this sometime just remember to scroll all the way to the bottom of the help page, you see the last sentence although quite short, is, it has to be said crucial.
"Note that you will need to style them, and add Main Page links and br /> 's where necessary."
