    works nicely but how about adding these features:

    I'd like to have more control over the output as I'd like to show the latest 5 updated pages. In a list.

    How about adding the option to output them in a list, i.e. inside ul tags having a li tag for each page?

    Also currently the shortcode [date] is used. Is there a shortcode for last_modified?

    Great plugin!

    More suggestions: Your "Read-Me" file needs some editing. There is not enough information there about the short codes and the codes the users can place in the widget. Also one of the sentences is cut off.

    The same applies here in the WordPress "Extend Page". I suggest adding an FAQ section to your plugin page.

    In WordPress Loop 0.2, I've added the ability to customize the entry container. It can now be a div, ol, or ul.

    Also currently the shortcode [date] is used. Is there a shortcode for last_modified?

    In WordPress Loop 0.2, I've added a new shortcode [last_modified] for use in before_content and after_content.

    In WordPress Loop 0.2, I've documented all the shortcodes and added an FAQ section in the readme.txt

    Set a class for title widget.

    In WordPress Loop 0.3, you can now target the widget title via css .widget-title

    ok, some confusion here:

    - when I asked for the output in the form of ul => li that was what I meant. Now, you output ul => li but then wrap every item again in a tag? That seems completely unnecessary.

    Also its a pity you use .entry-title as class. A lot of themes, use these classes for page/post/archive titles :-( so I have to completely restyle my widgets.

    Also your widget output looks completely different to other widgets :-(

    If I put any widget that produces a list, i.e. recent posts or recent forum posts, they all follow a certain scheme with their output, so they basically all look very similar and require minimum css adapting to look nice.

    Please do not get me wrong, I am not complaining, merely trying to suggest some improvements...

    Take this plugin as an idea: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/query-posts/ which does almost the same as yours except it doesn't give cotnent, just titles or this one http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/widgets-reloaded/ as inspirations.

    Maybe, .widget-title-1, .widget-title-2, etc, or user choosen the class name. This way, its possible set a different icon each section of widget in homepage.

    if you want to target a specific title, target the parent div:
    .widget-wrap-sidebar-1 .widget-title {}
