I'm trying to get the latest blog entries from a specific blogholder, to be shown inside another blogholder using this code:

class BlogHolderDecorator extends DataExtension { 
   public function latestNews($max) {
   		$holder = DataList::create('BlogHolder')->filter('URLSegment', 'blog');
         return DataList::create('BlogEntry')->filter('ParentID', $holderID)->limit($max);

in I have:

<% loop latestNews('5') %>
<% end_loop%>

This doesn't work yet.. any idea what I'm missing here?

Your PHP has a few little typo's. It should look like

$holder = DataList::create('BlogHolder')->filter('URLSegment', 'blog')->first();

return DataList::create('BlogEntry')->filter('ParentID', $holder->ID)->limit($max);
