Nice plugin, but not perfect
By ,

...because it's not working with pagination (wpPageNavi).

Nice, but lacks sidebar functionality
By ,

After running into issues with other similar plugins, I was hopeful about this one. Unfortunately, it seems you can only determine which pages it appears on from within the widget settings. It doesn't seem to care if it is in a sidebar and a page's template calls that sidebar. It only cares if the plugins page types are selected.

If I'm missing something, I'd be happy to be corrected.

The has potential for featuring categories
By , for WP 3.5.1

I am just getting started with this plugin but it show good potential for placing featured categories on a magazine style page.

Flexible and customizable

Love this widget. It is the perfect solution to show the posts that I want to display and it's content. It is easy to customize, if necessary. I like that the thumbnails for the posts show as desire. Thanks for a great plugin.
