    Is it possible to have the thumb and except side by side instead of on top of each other?

    You have to edit the CSS file of your current theme.

    For example, to float the image left you could add this rule:

    .widget.posts-in-sidebar img {
    float: left;
    height: 60px; /* modify this value to match your needs */
    margin-right: 10px; /* modify this value to match your needs */
    width: 60px; /* modify this value to match your needs */
    }

    If this rule doesn't resolve, you should target more precisely the image. In this case, tell me the URL of the site where you are using the plugin.

    Let me know if you need further help.

    Hi,
    add these lines at the end of your CSS file (usually styles.css):

    p.pis-title {
    float: right;
    width: 155px;
    }
    
    img.pis-thumbnail-img {
    border: 1px solid #eee;
    margin-right: 10px;
    padding: 4px;
    }

    Let me know.

    Hello,
    I’m hoping you or someone can help me.
    I am building a site using Twenty Twelve theme and the customer wants to put an announcement feature in the sidebar in the form of a picture of a blackboard and then if say there is an event on Saturday he just writes a post and it’s on the blackboard for all to see,
    Now how can I use Posts in Sidebar to do this or is it not possible?
    Thank you
    David

    @djgb63

    "Posts in Sidebar" can be used for this: the plugin can grab the last posts published in the category (for example) "Announcements" and then display it in the sidebar.

    You should work in the CSS to use a blackboard as background for the "announcement".

    You should hire a CSS developer or ask someone that can do it, because it requires a bit of work.

    Bye.

    The work you are asking for is outside of the intent of this plugin. The plugin can display your text/images but not the blackboard as background.
