Works like a charm – despite that it's old.

There’s a saying that well written clean code will always work.

This plugin is just such a case in point.

Last updated over 4 years ago but it works 100% perfect on WordPress 4.5.2.

I needed a very simple widget to show my last updated posts on the frontpage in a widget and it does just that … and it does it perfectly too.

A perfect little widget to let search engines know which of your content is no longer stale anymore.

Thank you !!!
