I don’t normally detour to post review, but want to give Bill a shout for solving my bother. Since I use WordPress as a CMS, posts get updated more frequently than new posts being added. “Recent Posts” is not so useful as “Recent Updates”. I tried a bunch of plug-ins for listing posts, a couple “kinda worked” but not satisfying. Expanding my search to plug-ins for general handling of posts, I found this. It took a few minutes to digest the help pages, and I worked up the shortcode for the sidebar:
[display-posts date_query_column=”post_modified” orderby=”post_modified” posts_per_page=”10″ include_date_modified=”true”]
which is just what I wanted – a list with the same format as my “Key Pages” and “Recent Posts” showing post I recently edited. The site seems to runs as smoothly as before Display Posts and no CSS error messages. Thank you, Bill, I am so pleased with this plug-in!
