An advanced posts display widget with many options. Display posts in your sidebars any way you'd like!
The third option (tab) available for getting posts is directly with a list of post IDs. If there is a value in this field, any settings in the "Post Type" or "Taxonomy & Term" tabs will be ignored and all public post types will be queried for the specific post IDs provided. All the other widget options (Display, Thumbnails and Template settings) will still be applied.
Per a WordPress support thread:
Go to Posts in your WordPress admin, and click the post you need the ID of. Then, if you look in the address bar of your browser, you'll see something like this:
The number, in this case 1280, is the post ID.
You'll want to create a custom HTML template by following the instructions and then you can use the standard WordPress Custom Field functions the same way you would if you were editing your theme's other template files.
A simple code example for a custom field named "test_field" might look like the following:
$test_field_value = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'test_field', true ); echo $test_field_value;
FPW intentionally does NOT add any styling of it's own. To adjust the font size, color, alignment, image size, etc. of any output from this widget, you'll need to edit your theme's styles.
I'd love to support more languages. The plugin's POT file is available with the download. Feel free to post PO & MO files for your language to a new forum thread and I'll get them added to the plugin.
