Small and fast plugin to display in the sidebar a list of linked titles and thumbnails of the most recent postings
No huge widget with hundreds of options. This plugin is based on the well-known WordPress default widget 'Recent Posts' and enhanced to display thumbnails of the posts.
The thumbnails will be built from the featured image of a post or of the first image in the post content. If there is neither a featured image nor a content image then you can define a default thumbnail.
The thumbnails appears left-aligned to the post titles. You can set the width and heigth of the thumbnails in the list.
The widget is available in english and german.
