!This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Featured Post Type

Displays most recent posts from a specific post type and a drop down to select previous entries.

Can I use this in more than one widget area?

Yes, this plugin has been made for multi-widget compatibility. Each instance of the widget will display, if wanted, differently than every other instance of the widget.

How can I style the plugin output?

The plugin uses several "common" WordPress functions that create standard class and id elements that can be styled in the style.css file * the classes generated by the post_class() function; and, the id generated by "post-" apended to the_ID() function wrap the general post output * the plugin class post-details wraps the general meta details of the post, such as the Author, Categories, Tags, etc. * the overall plugin may also be wrapped in a widget "container" class, or id, specific to the theme itself such as (but not limited to): widget, sidebar, left, right, etc.

With the addition of the display Category Description option an additional class was written into the plugin. To style the category description displayed add the class 'fpt-cat-desc' to your style.css file then use your choice of properties to style the text, for example:

.fpt-cat-desc {font-style: italic;}

Can I increase the maximum posts to display?

As of version 1.0 the Total Posts to Display is independent of the "posts per page" setting as set under Settings | Reading. But it is not fully implemented
