Blog to Squarespace - need to show headlines of latest posts of a Wordpress blog on our Squarespace site

Recommended Posts

Hi, any help will be hugely appreciated. 
I would like to use Squarespace for our new company website.

MD is unsure, they want their three latest blogposts to appear as headlines on the home page. Their blog is in Wordpress. 

I have been searching for custom code to enable me to pull the content from the external site and update when a new blog is posted. 

Many thanks all.

Sire is still in trial development so can't supply that but here is a link to the rough homepage.

You should be able to do this with a summary block, limit it to 3 items, and disable everything but the title.

Apologies, I thought you were transfering the wordpress blog to Squarespace.

I'm not aware of a great way to do this, but should be possible with the RSS feed from the wordpress site and use a plugin to place this on the Squarespace website.

It can be done, you just need the WordPress blog feed url. It won't look like the sample in your image though. There may be code to format it that way, but I do not know what it is. Hopefully if it's possible someone can help.

If you use the embed block with the feed url it will look like the image below.
