    Footer Post Widget

    I am looking to be able to display the lastest post in the footer, sitewide. The site structure is as follows:

    Home
    - Blog Landing

    Most of the existing widgets rely on the widget being on a page in a particular place, I need to break out of that.

    What would you recommend?

    You can either reuse or copy the existing latest posts widget.

    var nodes = PostService.Instance.GetPosts(Model.Content).Take(itemLimit).ToIPublishedContent(true);

    The itemLimit can be replaced with 1 if thats all you want.

    I tried that, but I'd only get it on the home page and blog landing page, not on other children of the home node. In the end I went for a simple xslt solution, though it might be good to create a specialised widget for displaying the latest post (with excerpt and read more link) for use anywhere in a site.

    I think this widget might be what you're looking for : uBlogsyWidgetListPostsForHome.cshtml
