I’m searching for a nice looking simple plugin to display posts which I choose in a widget with thumbnails and the post title. I would like it to look as clean as possible and would like it to use the style of my theme. In other words I don’t want it to have it’s own stylings which may not match what I already have.
I wouldn’t mind paying for such a pluging but there is just so much crap out there I thought I would ask here before wasting anymore time!
I was looking for something similar myself, couldn’t find anything so I have made a small plugin.
Haven’t decided whether to add it to the WordPress plugin repository or not yet, but if you email me at info at apinapress dot com I can send you a copy (for free of course).
It is pretty basic, a widget to add post permalink, image and excerpt (image and excerpt are optional) and some minimal CSS. Only caveat is you have to input a list of comma separated ID’s rather than select from a list.
