• Upload the recent_entries folder to /system/expressionengine/third_party/

Recent Entries includes support for the Default and Corporate EE2 themes. In addition it supports custom themes: If you have a custom theme and would like to override the default styles then create a new file named yourtheme.css (where ‘yourtheme’ is, you’ve guessed it, the name of the custom theme you’re using) and place it inside the /themes/third_party/recent_entries/css folder. The file will be detected and displayed instead of the default CSS.
