There are several plugins that add a widget to the sidebar showing recent posts from a chosen category. But this plugin choses the category automatically based on the category that the post being viewed belongs to. The widget only displays on single post pages.
First time installation instructions
- Unzip and upload the php file to your wordpress plugin directory
- Activate the plugin
- Go to the Design > Widgets – Drag the widget into a sidebar and save!
The title of the widget and number of posts for each category can be changed through the menu on the ‘Widgets’ page.
