Hi Mike,

I have been trying to work out how to use the code that you wrote, as I 
like that it makes the recent posts widget work, but it seems to mess 
with my blog posts only page in that it shows posts from my custom post 
type aswell as posts from the blog, have tried using !is_page ( array ( 
'Blog', 'blog' ) ) but it doesn't seem to change anything.

Do you have any ideas as to what I could do ?

Also do you or anyone know how I could get a list based archive on my 
side bar for my custom post type, but to only show the last 6 months, as 
its fairly long list otherwise.

Have decided to keep the blog posts and the custom post type archives
