Featured Tag Widget

This widget plugin displays a list of posts (and much more) for a particular Tag in your sidebar. Multi-instance.


Sidebar widget plugin that displays a list of posts (and much more) for a particular tag. You can also add multiple instances of this widget. This plugin gives you full control on the widget with these options:

  • custom widget Title (or no Title)
  • custom text for the description of the content or whatever
  • the Featured Tag dropdown menu (obviously required to show posts content), shows Tag: "Name-ID-(total posts)"
  • how many posts for the featured Tag to show for each instance of the widget
  • the posts informations to show:
  • image thumbnail (if present in the post)
  • post title
  • post author
  • the post order: newest to oldest --> oldest to newest

'This widget plugin works with WordPress Tags, not Categories.'

Have fun!

  • Suitable for featured tags, Magazine covers and articles lists, links, business directory, etc.
  • With two istances you can for example put just one image on one istance of the widget and a full list of posts on another instance, in order to have a perfect summary of specific issues.
  • You can also use this widget as a Sidebar Gallery, showing just the images
  • Insert a custom text box and, why not, an image or more for a particular tag.
