I'm using Sharepoint Foundation 2010. I'm trying to include announcements from my parent site in my subsite's announcement list. Or atleast in a separate list/webpart above it. If its not possible to completely integrate them together or just inherit the parent announcements in the child's I'd like to just show the 5 most recent parent announcement titles linked to the actual announcements and then maybe a show more button that links to the parent announcement list itself.
I have very very little experience with ASP.net and Sharepoint in general. Sadly I'm unable to use CQWP - that seemed to be able to do what I want to do very easily. I tried using DataView and had no luck. I tried the "VG Content Display" webpart on Codeplex but I could only get it to work with documents not announcement content type for whatever reason. Yes I changed the data type values and such.
I really need to figure this out soon! Please someone tell me the best way to do this with little experience.
