    I have a blog widget in my page footer to show the last 5 recent blog posts.  However, when you click on a blog post, the widget itself also displays the entire post.  I don't want this behaviour.  How can I configure the footer blog widget to just show the last five post links and not change based on url?

    Hi David,

    You should configure the BlogPost widget to point to a new page that holds the BlogPost itself (details). You can do this by editing the widget properties. (Widget Properties -> Single Item Settings)

    Best regards,
    Daniel

    Sorry didn't explain this very well, the problem was having two widgets doing the same thing on the page and they were following each other.

    The solution is to change the urlprefix as described in this post I found googling around:

    Hi David,

    I see. Yes, that would be the appropriate solution. Glad you have worked it out.

    Best,
    Daniel
