Custom Recent Posts Widget

A widget to show recent posts list based on categories or tags

This plugin creates a new widget which lets you show a list of recent posts based on categories or tags.

By default the wordpress recent posts widget shows a posts from all category. But this plugin gives you more power to customize your recent posts widget. You can also display post date in the widget.
