Flexible Posts Widget

An advanced posts display widget with many options. Display posts in your sidebars any way you'd like!

The default Recent Posts widget is exceptionally basic. I always find myself in need of a way to easily display a selection of posts from any combination post type or taxonomy. Hence, Flexible Post Widget.

Flexible Posts Widget (FPW) is more than just a simple alternative to the default Recent Posts widget. With many per-instance options it is highly customizable and allows advanced users to display the resulting posts virtually any way imaginable.

Features & options

  • Customizable widget title
  • Get posts by post type(s) and/or taxonomy & term(s) or directly by a list of post IDs.
  • Control the number of posts displayed and the number of posts to offset.
  • Option to display the post feature image.
  • Select the post feature image size to display from existing image sizes: thumbnail, medium, large, post-thumbnail or any size defined by the current theme.
  • Order posts by: date, ID, title, menu order, random, Post ID Order; and sort posts: ascending or descending.
  • Each widget's output can be customized by user-defined templates added to the current theme folder.
