[resolved] Latest category posts widget + thumb (4 posts)

    I'm looking for a simple widget that can display the latest posts in a given category, including the excerpt, and have a single thumbnail on top of the list, either the thumb associated with the most recent of posts or a generic image -- both would suit me.

    I've been trying out the existing category posts widgets but none of them can do this, if I'm not mistaken. Would it be possible perhaps to generate a short code that displays the latest category posts + excerpt and put that in a Text widget?

    I found something to get me underway. People who are interested in the same should follow this link, it has a simple, straight forward tutorial on how to call the most recent posts in a certain category in a PHP widget.
