Thank you for a wonderful plugin. I created my own template to smooth out some Google structured data error messages thrown up from using post_class() but they don't impact anything anyway I don't think. Thank you again.

This Widget Rocks!

Just what I was looking for to add a special look to my posts and pages. The best...it took me like 2 whole minutes to get it uploaded and configured. Thank you, thank you!

I am getting a ton of use out of this plugin on multiple sites; the ability to create different templates for instances is something I wish more plugins had. This way I can add my own footer link to the full archive of content (again a lot of plugins lack this)

FWIW, some hosts (wp-engine) by default turn off mySQL queries that use ORDER BY RAND so the random option was MIA on one site.

Maybe the most important plugin for a developer

Coming frome Drupal I miss the flexibility Drupal's views module brings to a site: generate posts with different criteria to a block you can alternate. Flexible Posts widget brings this flexibiliy to WordPress. Thanks a lot!

Feature Wish: Built-in checkbox to "hide current post".

A really great plugin.

This plugin saves me a lot of time when designing sites as it gives all the setting I need to create some nicely designed pages. I have yet to "hit the wall", which is what I call it when you want a plugin to do X and it doesn't.

I just updated one client's website to 3.9 and everything worked just as I designed it.

One thing I think needs to be improved are the instructions on where to put your custom templates as I was confused by how the installations instructions are worded. If you are confused about this, here is how you do it... In your theme folder (hopefully you are using a child theme) you create a new folder called "flexible-posts-widget", and you put your custom templates directly into that folder.

Great plugin!

The ability to use different templates for each instance of the widget is just fantastic! Just what I needed.

My rating goes 5 stars

Installed your plugin and with some knowledge( basically to know how to copy and paste some wp hooks, and to wrap them in some css classes) it proves to be indeed very flexible. :)

Great plugin, but no option to show post date, or other meta.
