I'm still trying to find the ultimate recent posts plugin and while this is really close (great work by the way!) I have a couple of things to log.
I have one bug to report and a couple of feature requests.
The bug is that the class on the widget container is broken. It's "Special Recent Posts", which is actually three classes.
This makes styling the h3.widget-title hard. I can select this in my css by selecting .Special.Recent.Posts, but it should be fixed.
I suspect it something to do with the registration of the widget.
Feature 1: Title Link
Could you provide an option (or some options) to link the h3.widget-title to something? Options might be:
- Link to blog index
- Link to category index
There is a global "Use Category Title", but if this could have a little more flexibility and be configurable on a per-instance basis that would be awesome.
Feature 2: Custom classes
I want to style different instances of the widget differently. Could you add a "Widget Class" option that would enable me to target individual instances in CSS (without depending on the widget-instance-specific ID's)?
I could probably help fix/develop these things if you wanted me to.
Thanks again...it's really good compared to other similar plugins.
