Kalin's Post List

Creates a widget, shortcode or PHP snippet for inserting dynamic, highly customizable lists of posts or pages such as related posts or table of conten

Creates a widget, shortcode or PHP snippet for inserting dynamic, highly customizable lists of posts or pages such as related posts or table of contents into your post content or theme.

Comes with 11 different presets, such as a list in a dropdown, a list within a CSS table, a footer-style list, a standard bulleted list, and a recent images list. You can also create an infinite number of your own presets with totally custom HTML so you can have different kinds of lists all over your website.

Comes with 22 "internal shortcodes" (many with parameters for even more customization) that you can use to add post-specific information to each item in your list. This include the basics like title, author, permalink, date (with custom formatting), thumbnail, as well as some fancier ones like post meta data, comments, categories, tags, and a PHP function shortcode to allow you to inject your own PHP scripts.

Options: Choose post type (includes custom posts), and the number of posts to show. There are 16 options for "order by", and an ascending/descending selector. You can also choose a post parent (e.g. list children of current page). Then you can select the categories and/or tags from which you'd like to show, or you can base this option off the current post's categories or tags (use like a related posts plugin). You may also choose to require that every post contain every category or tag. Then, of course, the HTML of the list and the information to actually show is completely customizable. Finally you can choose whether or not to include the current post on which the list is sitting.
