List Category Posts allows you to list posts by category in a post/page using the [catlist] shortcode. When you're editing a page or post, directly insert the shortcode in your text and the posts will be listed there. The basic usage would be something like this:

[catlist id=1]
[catlist name="news"]

The shortcode accepts a category name or id, the order in which you want the posts to display, and the number of posts to display. You can also display the post author, date, excerpt, custom field values, even the content!

The [catlist] shortcode can be used as many times as needed with different arguments on each post/page. You can add a lot more parameters according to what and how you want to show your post's list:

[catlist id=1 numberposts=10]

There's an options page with only one option -for the moment-, new options will be implemented on demand.

Please read the instructions to learn which parameters are available and how to use them.

If you want to List Categories instead of posts you can use my other plugin List categories.

You can find Frequently Asked Questions here.

Customization

The different elements to display con be styled with CSS. you can define an HTML tag to wrap the element with, and a CSS class for this tag. Check Other Notes for usage.

Great to use WordPress as a CMS, and create pages with several categories posts.

Widget

The plugin includes a widget which works pretty much the same as the plugin. Just add as many widgets as you want, and select all the available options from the Appearence > Widgets page.

Please, read the information on Other Notes and Changelog to be aware of new functionality, and improvements to the plugin.
