Reviews

There is a bug in this plugin

If you put a number in the post/blog link (title), this plugin won’t work properly

Admittedly, haven’t emailed support, but going by others, not likely to get support

Great little plugin!

Does exactly what I needed for my site… There was a little something more that I would have liked it to do and after contacting “the man”, he helped by adding the custom CSS.

CSS knowledge needed to style – I have added date info

Great little plugin – does what I want. Checked out a few and this one suited best. Can’t give it a 5 as I still had to put a bit of time in with css, and alter index.php for my requirements. Reading previous Support replies helped with information.

I added at line 75 in the index.php to carry post date across:
$my_date = $post->post_date;
$out .= ‘<div class=”date”>’.mysql2date(‘F j, Y’, $my_date).'</div>’;

for date variations:

Impressed the author is still responding to Support although the plugin has not been updated in two years.

If styling and configuration options were built in it would be worthy of a commercial product.

I spent a couple of hours researching and configuring for my requirements, but fortunately I have carried those styling adjustment and modifications over to three other sites so far.

If those editing options were out of the box I would have been happy to pay $20 – $30 for the product.

Excellent plugin and brilliant support

I love this plugin. It does exactly what it says. However, I wanted it to do something more, so I tried and didn’t get it to work, so I mailed the lovely creator of this plugin who helped me change the code so it would work. Now it doesn’t only show regular Posts from a chosen category, but it’s also showing my selected Custom Post Type.
So I’m really happy with both what the plugin does and the brilliant support I received.

No Support

Great plugin on paper. But NO SUPPORT!
I tried it on my development site and encountered a couple of issues. Three weeks later I have had no response to my queries. I am not alone – just take a look at the support tab and see the age of queries/responses.

Such a shame.
