Rick, thanks so much sir! This worked to an extent. I am still having display issues using the provided syntax above. I deleted the last line as I only have two test categories, perhaps that is the issue I am not sure. But I inserted the top two lines enclosed with the Slider attribute.
The problem is more than the text is showing, it appears the display page stats are showing too ie: hits, last modification, last author and etc. You can view my attempt here at http://tpwtestuser.com/tiki/Latest+Pages#&panel1-1
We almost got it, but I am afraid I am in unchartered water here and any help additional you can provide would be great. Thanks so much Rick.
