Flexible and easy to use
By , for WP 4.2.2

Hard to search long and hard for something that could do what I needed. This plugin provides. It cannot do everything, but it does really a lot - and it does it very well.

Not Fancy, But Highly Functional
By , for WP 4.2.2

I've used a number of these query posts plugins over the years, and I like this one the best. Written with developers in mind, it foregoes front-end styling (read: clutter) in favor of fine-tuned customization. The plugin controls the data, and I control the appearance... exactly what I want.

The widget itself is intuitive, but it's even more impressive behind the scenes. The plugin has clean code that follows best-practices, and I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of filters that I could use to tailor my setup to my needs.

I suppose this plugin could provide fields for a few more wp_query arguments, but for now, I can overcome those limitations with the templating system or the dpe_fpw_args filter (which alters the query).

Great time saver. Very useful plugin.

The best plugin for easy post displaying
By , for WP 4.3.1

Takes into consideration all custom post types, taxonomies and everything, one of the few if not the only one who does it and works correctly.

Overall well done.

much more useful than default recent posts widget

Awesome little gem the Flexible Posts Widget is. It should replace what's currently in core as that is just not very useful at all.

Flexible this plugin is for sure and if that is not enough to your liking then you can simply control the output yourself by adding one or more widgets to your theme.

Added to my favourites and will be using this a lot from now on!

Thanks for developing it!

I can confirm the notifications of JB Christy.
This is how a plugin should be build!

Very Useful but little problem

Hi, first of all this plugin is very useful, i just used it in one of my client website but having little issue, this plugin cannot be called with short code, if you can add this feature then this plugin will be awasome.


Great plugin!

This is a very useful, very flexible plugin. It handles both custom post types and custom taxonomies as cleanly and easily as standard post types and taxonomies. It's also very customizable, allowing you to specify your own templates for the widget display (very useful!) and the back-end admin display. I've dug into the code and the code is very clean and professionally written. This could be a poster child for how to write a WordPress plugin. Nice job!

My only issue with this plugin is that it only allows you to select terms in a single taxonomy, e.g. either categories or tags but not both. The reason I dug into the code is that I needed to specify both categories and tags badly enough that I modified the code to allow that. I've submitted a pull request on github in the hopes that the author will incorporate this change into a future version of the plugin. But if you don't need to filter on more than one taxonomy, this plugin should work great for you as is.

Fantastic, only missing multiple lang support
By ,

I've looked into many plugins to pull content for my custom front pages, this one was the best i've found for that goal.
One issue i've bumped into recently though, I can't filter out the active lang when using WordPress with multiple front-end languages, such as Polylang.

Hoping the author can do something about it soon.

Thanks for the excellent tool. Cheers.
