Last Video Widget


This plugin allows to place a widget on your sidebar, that will fetch the last post of the category you specify, and display it inside the widget. In addition, if that post contains a youtube video tag inserted by the Viper’s Video Quicktags plugin, that video will be resized to the specified size, so you can fit it nicely in your sidebar width.


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory or use the wordpress plugin installer
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. A new “Twitter List Widget” will be available.


Will that post be displayed twice? Once in the blog loop and once on the sidebar?

Yes… There are other plugins around for doing more complex things than this one, and with a bit of coding it is also possible to prevent your blog from displaying posts from a certain category.
