Rotating Posts
Adding rotating posts to a widget to the sidebar (4 posts)

    Hi,
    First let me say it's a great plug-in that I managed to configure and adjust exactly to my needs. Well done.
    But I do have a problem inserting it correctly to my side bar.
    My blog - blog.pokerbuddy.com is using a theme with a sidebar that has a dynamic side bar function, as you can see below.
    I can only add your plug-in at the end of my other widgets or on the top.
    What should/can be done if I'd like to set it in between other widgets? do I need to edit the widgets.php in WP folders?
    Waiting for you answer
    Thanks

    <ul class="sidebar">

    <?php if(!function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') || !dynamic_sidebar() ) : ?>
    <li id="search"><h2>Search</h2>

    • <?php @include(TEMPLATEPATH.'/searchform.php'); ?>

    <?php endif; ?>
    <li id="Top 5 Posts"><h2>Top 5 Posts</h2>

    <?php rotating_posts(); ?>

    I, too, need a way to do this. I'm trying to make this work in a Widget Leaf in Headway. Help!

    I added a standard wordpress text widget to my sidebar, and just added [rotating-posts]. So far works great. However I cannot get thumbnails to automatically to work. But I'm not sure if that is something on my side yet.
