This plugin gives you possibility to create bullet lists for your posts. You can choose as many lists as you want and for each list you can select categories to include or to exclude posts.
Your posts can be randomized or sord by date. With title you can chose to show date or number of comments.
Lists can be show wherever you want – above or below posts, in archive, or on single post or page. Also, you can put a widget in a sidbar. You can choose to show lists only on first page or not.
You can modify your themplate to display list of post, add for single column or for multiple columns. If you want to show a list on one page (or post) you can use a shortcode [mm-breaking-news] when you write and the whole bullet list will be displayed.
