I always was looking for this plugin. It is light and just good working. The developer is very helpful and quick. I will install DPT into all my sides. I used to work with a other plugin, but it is trying to push the user to commercial pro-version. The Free-Version becomes stunted.

Простой и достаточно гибкий. Выводит не только записи, но и страницы. Я перебрал множество плагинов, этот оказался наиболее аккуратным и выводит информацию как внутри контента, так и в сайдбарах футерах и прочих частях сайта.

There are many similar plugin ! But this one, by FAR, is the best of the lot... Some just do posts, this one however, does CPT, with taxonomies, with various styles (lists, grids, etc...), but more impressively, it can also do sliders. I did not so thorough testing, as I got so exited from my initial impressions, that I had to rate it before diving in this thing more deeply. BTW, it has nice post sorting feature as well, with one of the choices being to display the posts Randomly, so this an also be used to display "related posts" as well ! Just beautiful !!!
