Great little plugin - does what I want. Checked out a few and this one suited best. Can't give it a 5 as I still had to put a bit of time in with css, and alter index.php for my requirements. Reading previous Support replies helped with information.
I added at line 75 in the index.php to carry post date across:
$my_date = $post->post_date;
$out .= '<div class="date">'.mysql2date('F j, Y', $my_date).'</div>';
for date variations:
Impressed the author is still responding to Support although the plugin has not been updated in two years.
If styling and configuration options were built in it would be worthy of a commercial product.
I spent a couple of hours researching and configuring for my requirements, but fortunately I have carried those styling adjustment and modifications over to three other sites so far.
If those editing options were out of the box I would have been happy to pay $20 - $30 for the product.
Ideally, I want a plug-in which will list all posts within a category much in the way that WordPress itself lists them when you click on the category. Of the many plug-ins I've tried, this one comes the closest to achieving that aim.
What would make this a five-star plug-in is the ability to exclude posts that were in a specific category, to combine posts from different categories and to order the posts by anything other than post order. Other plug-ins have these functions, but none of them display the posts in a format that meets my needs.
It was really easy to install, but I am having trouble with it pulling in all of my most recent posts as opposed to my category/tags. I used the slug version of both - has anyone else had this issue? Or is anyone using it with WP version 4.0.1 with no issues?
I tried it on a site with Responsive Theme that has many widgets.
This works in widgets only if you don't forget to authorize your WP to use shortcodes in widgets !!!! ;)
I found the solution in this link.
Thank you for the plugin !
I'm no expert as my username states but this plugin worked effortlessly. Anything that makes my job easier is worth a minute for me to review. I will continue to work with it and see if it continues to be a piece of cake.
