How to create latest news box in Drupal 7?

asked Mar 18, 2013 in Website Builder by carebare (1,420 points)
I have a website that I built using Drupal 7. I want to use views to make a box in my front page containing the latest news. I don’t know much how views work, and I don’t know how to do this, and I haven’t been able to find what I’m looking for. I want to add this latest news box in the header so all the latest news will display there in the header. I want this teaser text to link to another page. Can anyone please help me out, or at least tell me where to start.
Thanks and regards

You need to create a view with a display block that can be added in your page. Admin->structure->block, you can add fields to the block. To make is latest type view, sort by the post created date in a descending manner.
