    hello there,

    you can use the Special Recent Posts : Link Then you can tweak the CSS in order to display the posts like the way in the picture.

    Goodluck

    Thanks, but after looking at that plugin, it seems that does not offer a GRID view as I need such ;)

    ok, so in this case you will really have to edit your theme.. if you know about the wordpress Loop and CSS, so this article will suit your needs : Link

    Thank you very much for the link, do you know by any chance, how I could adjust that code or should I post that in the code forum?

    in fact it's too easy to integrate this code in your theme, you just have to know about the CSS and your theme thumbnails size in order to adjust the code.

    Don't edit your theme directly, install worpdress locally.. read this article : How to install wordpress locally.

    The loop in worpdress is this :

    if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post();
    ?>


    open your theme index.php file and add the code like in step one, then follow the other steps to add the css and the main code that will display the posts with thumnails... when you are sure that everything show up as you want so you can edit your current theme by adding the same codes you tested locally :)

    Goodluck
